Olive Tree Sympathy Gift with Acorn Book
Watering: Water every 4-5 days Sun: Olives need at least 6 hours of full sun. Prune: You should prune your olive trees in late Spring early Summer, before flowering. Most new growth will be produced from the pruning cuts.
Olive trees need a sunny spot and well-drained soil. Dig a hole the size of your olive trees container size. Avoid adding fertilizer, or any organic material. Simply plant in the soil and backfill with the same soil you took out.
Olives are not very cold hardy. Bring indoors before temperatures fall toward freezing. You can take your olive tree back outdoors once it is warm.
Potting & Container
Olive trees can be kept in containers/pot. They are very adaptable and drought tolerant. Best time to start growing olive trees in a container is in the Springtime. If transplanting, use well-draining rocky soil. Preferably use a wood or clay pot for planting. Place the pot/container in an area that receives at least 6 hours of full sun. Do not overwater - it is better to water too little than too much.
