Growing Calendar for Olive mini-standard patio tree
Delivery: Late September to Late October
Introduce a touch of the Mediterranean with evergreen olive expertly trained to grow on a single clear stem with a lovely tidy canopy of leaves. Beautiful grown in containers in your potager or in a sunny spot on your allotment.
As your tree establishes, it will produce more fruit with each year, given your plant receives maximum sun.
Water your mini-standard tree daily in summer; keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. In winter reduce watering as the tree goes into a more dormant phase.
Olive trees can withstand a cold winter, but not a wet and cold winter combined. If the winter is wet and cold bring your tree indoors placing in a light position.
Prune your tree so to keep an open framework of branches; pruning out dead, damaged or diseased stems.
If brought indoors for winter, return your olive tree outdoors in the spring after the last frosts, watering to keep the soil moist yet not waterlogged throughout the summer.
