This Mediterranean Olive Tree (Olea europaea) will do well outside in a sheltered spot in the UK or indoors as a feature in a light room or conservatory. At this size it will tolerate some frost and will produce small white flowers in late spring followed by its attractive fruit.
Current Description
The large olive trees are looking fantastic again this week with a bushy head of silvery-green foliage. They are a fabulous feature plant on their own, or a pair of olives with one either side of a doorway look very elegant too.

The olive is an outdoor tree with slivery green leaves and fruits. A young tree will live happily on a sunny window sill, or in a conservatory and give pleasure for years to come.

Olive trees need plenty of light to flower and fruit but will do well either indoors or outdoors if protected from extreme frost. Olive trees do best in a cool, well-lit room or in a sunny sheltered position in the garden.

While the plant is in a small pot it needs regular watering - don't let it dry out or you will damage the delicate roots, particularly as the soil is very compact. In winter your olive tree will need watering once or twice a week, in summer more frequently - almost every day if in a warm and sunny position. Allow the top of the soil to dry out completely between waterings and when watering it is best to water thoroughly from the top allowing any excess to drain away rather than standing the plant in water

If you are keeping your olive tree in a pot then once it has put on quite a bit of growth you might repot in a larger container in the spring. Choose a mixture of ordinary soil and potting compost. A good pruning a couple of times a year will also help to keep to keep a sculptured shape. Tiny white flowers should appear in the Spring with olive fruits developing over the summer and turning from green to browny-black in the autumn.

Most problems come from underwatering in Summer and overwatering in Winter. Both of these can lead to leaf drop. If the dropped leaves are crisp then a good watering and a return to a more regular routine will soon set your plant on the road to recovery. If the leaves are more leathery, the leaf drop is likely to be due to overwatering or allowing the delicate roots to sit in water. Try moving your plant to a sunnier position and withholding water until the soil has really dried out. You can gently remove the plastic pot to have a look at the dampness of the roots if in doubt.

With enough sunlight your tree should fruit even when quite small, however expect the fruit to be very bitter. Olives need to be "cured" properly to get rid of this bitter taste before eating
