These smaller sized trees still produce olives and beautiful foliage but are more easily manageable, and can be grown in pots on balconies, in patio gardens and make a fantastic entrance pairing.
They also make the perfect gift when coupled with a nice terracotta or fiberclay pot as pictured.
Best space & place
Olives are very easy-going, they need a good sunny spot, and not too much water. They are hardy in most parts of the UK.
When to water & feed
Overwatering is the most likely cause of olive tree problems. They need good draining compost and watering around once a week in summer, less frequently in winter.
Need to know
Olives can be used in homes as a feature plant however it requires a very bright location and good ventilation for air flow.
