Leccino olive tree, Italy. 

The Leccino variety is considered one of the most rustic Italian varieties and its cultivation extends mainly through the regions of Umbria and Tuscany. It is known for having a strong immune defence, making it tolerant of bacteria and diseases. The leaves of the Leccino olive tree are interesting for ornamental purposes due to their beautiful and thick foliage. It also gives a good yield of olives and olive oil. And perfect for the UK, the Leccino variety is conveniently small and slow growing for those with limited space. 

Where to grow

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. The most important thing to remember when planting your Olive Tree is to avoid planting it in a waterlogged position. Cold, wet ground in the winter is the cause of nearly all problems with Olive Trees. So choose a free draining spot or simply keep it in a pot! 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 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. 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.
