Why We Love It

The olive tree (Olea europaea) is an attractive, slow-growing evergreen commonly found in the Mediterranean and loved by many as a reminder of summer holidays.

This plant is grown in a standard form consisting of a long straight trunk and a rounded head of foliage, like a lollipop.

This standard olive tree adds an interesting outline to your planting scheme, as well as year-round foliage.

It certainly gives your garden kudos or your patio that look of grandeur when it's put in a favourite pot of yours, and left to bask in the sun over the summer.

It is covered in small, silver-grey leaves and is happy to grow in a hot, dry garden.

In the summer this plant produces clusters of small white flowers that are followed by small, round green olives that ripen to black (in ideal conditions!) In particularly hot and sunny summers you may be rewarded with a harvest of olives, but generally these are quite difficult to grow in the UK.

Worry not, if the fruits didn't form this year - there's always the next.

This small olive tree comes in a stylish metal bucket.

Planting and Care

Into the Ground

Once you've chosen the right spot for your tree, gather your spade, watering can and peat-free compost.

  1. Dig a deep hole roughly twice the size of the tree's rootball.
  2. Mix in a generous amount of soil and compost and add this into the hole.
  3. Gently spread the roots of the tree and then place the plant inside the hole.
  4. Backfill soil and water generously until set.

Into a Pot

Your tree will grow perfectly well in a pot or container, as long as your pot has enough room for the plant to properly extend its roots. You'll need your spade and a watering can, plus soil and peat-free compost.

  1. Sprinkle a little soil and compost in the bottom of your pot.
  2. Add your tree, backfilling with soil, using your spade or hand.
  3. Firm up and then water.
