I just received the (very small) olive tree in the mail in very good condition -- it was well-packed in excelsior & there was masking tape over the sides of the 4" pot to keep the soil intact. I planted the tree in an 8.5" ceramic pot with an 1/4" layer of sand over the top of the soil to protect the basil & Italian parsley seeds that I scattered around the base. Then I watered it & set it out on my back porch (southern exposure/full sun) & so now we'll see what happens ...
Out of the 4 live plants that I ordered from this company (1 olive, 1 pineapple, 1 blueberry, 1 banana), the only one that's not suffering AT ALL from transplant shock is the olive tree. And, incredibly, the tree's 2 lone branches (8" & 12") are already starting to show new growth. (Technically it's fall here in sunny Southern California, but we're still having quite warm days -- 70 to 90 degrees F.) So far, so good!
Mature Height 12-48'
Ideal Temperature: minimum 40 F
Offer peace in your home with the olive, the Ancient Greeks' traditional symbol of harmony, wisdom, and triumph. Native to the Mediterranean, the Olive tree is slow-growing, evergreen, and becomes attractive gnarled with age. Features gray-green leaves and fragrant, creamy white flowers that give way to delicious olives, ripening to black.
Care: Best grown in slightly sandy soil with good drainage in a sunny location. Fertilize monthly and water moderately during the growing season, sparingly water during winter.

Still alive! It grows kind of slowly but it is doing well. No olives yet but that is as suspected as it can take a few years. Will update when I get some!Published 5 months ago by Taylor Shmaylor
