Very unusual and quite exclusive due to a limited number grown, this small 20+ year old mature olive tree was pollarded from a young age.
Featuring a healthy, rich crown on a trunk full of character, this is perfect for placing on tables around a terrace or an outdoor kitchen.

Bonsai Style Olive Tree 11
Olive trees love a sunny, sheltered well drained site; a south facing position is ideal, however it’s not essential as long as there is lots of sunlight and the soil is well drained. A well drained soil can be achieved by digging in lots of grit before planting. Wind is not a problem for olives - they can even cope in a seaside location with salt laden winds. The same conditions apply for container grown olives, potting up with a mixture of John Innes No.3 and multipurpose compost, ideally with some added grit for drainage.
