How to Care
• If planted into a container make sure the Olea europaea tree is well watered during the growing season as the roots cannot search for water like they do in the ground. Special attention require if planted in terracotta as this bakes the soil in summer. Even though these trees are very drought tolerant, water them at least twice a week during the active growth period. Water is restricted to once every 2 weeks during the winter period.

• To help promote new growth, flowering and fruiting, give a feed with a slow release general purpose fertiliser around the base of the tree in spring. In the growing season an occasional feed with a liquid fertiliser is beneficial. Stop feeding the tree in early fall to stop the new growth which could be damaged in winter.
Particularly the hedge plantings will benefit from fertilising during the growing season if they become slow or thin canopied.

• Olea europaea trees should be regularly pruned to keep them in shape and to promote new growth. The pruning preserves the flower-bearing shoots of the preceding year, while keeping the tree low enough to allow the easy gathering of the fruit. The crop from old trees is sometimes enormous, but they seldom bear well two years in succession and in many cases a large harvest occurs every sixth or seventh season.
A light prune in spring will help shape the tree after the winter by cutting out any dead, damaged or diseased growth
