The Olive tree is one of the most beloved, sacred trees and its place is firmly rooted in Ancient Greek tradition and mythology. Traditionally, the olive tree is a symbol of peace and friendship, this association began in ancient Greece, as early as the fifth century. For more on the Olive tree's symbolism read here.
Every Olive tree is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
Your Olive tree will happily grow in its organic pot for the next few weeks, just place it in a sunny spot in the garden or a cool conservatory. Olive trees appreciate being drenched with water when the surface soil is almost dry.
Plant your Olive tree, still in its organic pot, so the roots are not disturbed, in a large flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away). Your Olive tree will thrive in a sunny spot in the garden, a bright porch or cool conservatory. It will require the winter chill to encourage its spring blossoms and can tolerate temperatures as low as -5C.
