Olive trees are a great addition to any garden, not only for their fruit, but also their great looks and heat and drought tolerance. Olive trees have stunning silver green leaves and can grow up to 7 meters tall. Your olive tree is great for shade or hedging, or as a feature plant in the garden.
Locate your olive tree where it will receive full sun (at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day).
Plant and water your olive tree thoroughly and consistently until it becomes established. Once established, olive trees are some of the most drought resistant trees in the world.
If you are planning on pruning your olive trees, just remember that they fruit on branches that have grown from the previous spring and summer. Cutting of this growth this will reduce the potential for fruit in the following season.
