These trees are grown as standards and are supplied in 7ltr pots. The trees will cross pollinate to achieve the best chances for high yields. Fruiting is always variable in the Uk but planting these varieties will give you the best chances of achieving good results.

Olive grove bundle
When planting your Olive grove select a site in a warm sunny position if possible in a South West facing aspect. It’s not necessary to cultivate a deep planting site as the trees as they say in Tuscany ‘need to get to know their soil’. It is however good to remove any competitive weeds from around the planting area of your trees giving them approximately a square metre of soil around them without grass or other plants, this will enable your trees to establish quickly. Mulch the surrounding area with wood chip or straw and water well for the first 2 Summers. It’s a common misconception that Olive trees don’t need water, if you want your trees to fruit then water is incredibly important install either an irrigation system to drip water daily for about 20 minutes or water your trees by hand with about 5 litres of water a day. As your trees mature over the first 2 years then you can reduce this as they will send down a root system to find enough water to satisfy their needs.
We can take orders of trees in any quantity required but advise planting at least 3 trees to start off your grove, for large orders please contact us to discuss availability and delivery.
The trees will available from March 2024 and pre orders will be delivered from this date allowing planting before Spring in the U.K. All our Olive trees meet the requirements set by DEFRA
