The Olive tree is a tough evergreen tree with stunning silvery foliage. Its prized fruit has made it a beloved and revered plant worldwide. The Olive tree is not only a symbol of timeless beauty but also a remarkably easy-to-care-for addition to your garden.
Here’s how to care for your Olive Tree.
Position your Olive Tree in a location where it can bask in 6-8 hours of direct sunlight.
Ensure the soil is thoroughly soaked during watering and allow excess water in the saucer to drain away to prevent root rot. Wait for the top 3-5cm of soil to dry out before watering again, particularly in the summer when more frequent watering may be needed.
Tip: even if the soil surface appears dry, it might still be moist beneath. Before watering, insert your finger into the soil to gauge moisture levels. If it feels soggy, hold off on watering for a few days and recheck.
Temperature & Humidity
Maintain an environment with moderate to warm temperatures and average humidity for your Olive Tree.
During spring, nourish your Olive Tree with a well-balanced organic fertiliser.
In late spring, conduct pruning to shape your Olive Tree. Remove any dead or damaged leaves and eliminate suckers, which tend to sprout from the roots and should be pruned away.
