Large Tuscan Crown Olive Tree 160/180cm. 30 Litre Pot: Mature Olive Tree with a traditional Tuscan crown, "Form Toscana" the heads are trimmed hard at a young age to create 3 shoots from the main trunk, after this first trim they are left to grow naturally this is the Tuscan way, they are left like this so the Olives are easier to pick. Tuscan Olive trees are never trimmed to a neat ball these are more likely Sicilian or Spanish, but not Tuscan! These are fully hardy for the UK climate and look amazing in large pots.
What to expect: To describe dimensions etc of these plants accuraterly is difficult they are by nature rather random, on average they stand at approximately 160/180cm above the pot this is from the top of the pot to the upper end of the crown, clear stem is around 100/110cm and the heads have an approximate spread of around 60cm, some are slighlly taller some are some slightly shorter if you have a specific requirement please let us know, we will do what we can. Pictures are autumn 2021 stock.
Whilst olive trees require no pruning you may wish to undertake some light pruning to keep the head size in check, this is best done in the milder months, this will avoid frost damage to any new growth which will appear pretty quickly.
All of our Olives are outdoor garden plants and not suitable for indoors.
