Olea europaea or olive tree can be kept in a pot or tub or full ground in our climate and gives a Mediterranean look on many terraces.
The olive does not lose leaves, it stays green. The whimsical stems are particularly special from older olives.
Olive trees of up to 200 years old are available, old olive trees get beautiful rough stems.
During the flowering and fruit setting extra water may be given, then the olives become pretty big.
A little cow's milk pellet every two months or special Olive focus, from April to September.
During the wintering in a tub in a cool place, the olive only needs a small amount of water once a month.
There are different types of olives and in case of severe cold a few species fall more leaves than others.
From April there will soon be new leaves and the olive will be full in leaf again in no time.
We have had an olive tree in our example garden for many years.
This is wrapped with climate cloth in the winter from the end of November / beginning of December. We will remove the winter protection again at the end of March.
