Olive Trees (Olea Europea) respond particularly well to pruning, and they look elegant and modern grown as standards with a clear stem.
The leaves are pointed, grey-green and leathery and are retained all year.
Tiny, fragrant, creamy-white flowers are followed in hot summers by edible, green fruits. Olive trees make excellent specimens for a sunny,
Mediterranean-style garden, or try this standard in a large pot to frame an entrance or terrace.
In milder winters it can be left outdoors in a sheltered spot, otherwise, it will need to be overwintered under glass.
Garden care: To protect against wind damage stake using a low angled stake, driven into the ground on the windward side at a 45° angle.
Water regularly during dry periods, keeping the planting area weed-free.
Apply a top-dressing of a nitrogen-rich general purpose fertiliser twice or three times each year during the growing season.
Size: 140cm above the pot, head 45cm
