Standard Mature Olive Tree Large Head Thick Stem 1.8 Metres tall inc pot. Olive trees are a great choice for a Mediterranean themed garden, they add a more rugged look than the formality of a standard Bay Tree. Olive Trees are instantly recognisable and something we associate with warmer climates, however they are very tough plants and will cope admirably with the Uk climate. Our trees are grown in Northern Italy and depending on the time of year purchased may arrive bearing fruit. Whilst these are tough plants they will thrive with a little bit of help along the way. The most important thing to remember is where they originate, they do not like to much water and certainly not a continually wet area. If planting in the ground ensure it is in a free draining area that does not get waterlogged, if pot planted be sure to add some drainage, and try adding a slow release fertiliser in early spring.
What to expect: Pictures are our actual plants reserved at our growers, until departure date. Your plant will arrive with a thick stem chunky stem with a girth of 18/20cm, and actual height excluding the pot of approximately 155-175cm, including the pot 1.8 metres plus. Stem size is around 100/110cm, heads are compact and dense approximately 55/60cm diameter, your plant or plants will look exactly like the pictures. Olive trees by nature can be quite random in height, even plants from the same batch can often arrive with differing heights hence not being able to be more accurate with sizes (155-175cm ex pot ) if purchased as a pair we will always send out trees with matching heights and heads.
Due to the weight of these plants, around 35kg they are dispatched on a pallet, this is classed as a kerbisde service, please keep this in mind if your property is difficult to access, we will contact you prior to dipatch to arrange a convenient arrival day.
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.
