Where to grow your 3/4 Standard 

Your Olive Tree will respond best in a sheltered sunny spot, but this does not mean that you will be unable to grow it elsewhere in your garden.  Olives are very happy in pots as they have a very small root system. Top dress annually your potted Olive Tree with John Innes No.3 compost

How hardy is an Olive Tree?

The simple answer to this is “very hardy”. Olive Trees will happily survive with no ill effects whatsoever in temperatures as low as -15. Temperatures lower than this can cause scarring to the bark but this will heal and contributes to the gnarly effect that we all know and love.  Once again, the thing to stress is make sure the ground around your Olive isn’t too wet in the winter. 

Feeding your Olive tree

We have created an organic slow release Olive Feed to ensure your Olive Tree gets the nutrients it requires.  A blend of guano, seaweed and epsom salts our olive blend will fertilise and strengthen your Olive Tree year round. High in potassium, phosphate and magnesium it enriches the soil and encourages tree growth. Available online. http://www.thenorfolkolivetreecompany.co.uk/product/slow-release-olive-feed-buy-now-free-delivery/  Sprinkle the base of your Olive Tree and surrounding soil with a generous scoop of our Olive feed in early spring and then again mid-summer. If you are keeping your Olive in a pot, water well every other day during the growing season April to October. If the cold weather has led to your tree shedding some of its leaves, then a good soak followed by tomato feed will soon have it replacing them with new leaves.
