You have that empty sunny spot you are protecting your green friends from for fear of scorched leaves? Meet your new acquaintance! The Olive tree!
This ornamental tree is easy to care for and will bring a Mediterranean holiday feel to your home or garden! The Olive Tree forms a rounded head of small, silvery-grey leaves. Tiny white flowers appear in the summer, followed by small, round green olives that ripen to black.
It may be harder to produce fully ripened olives in the UK as these plants require a lot of heat and shelter. We recommend growing your olive tree in a large pot and moving it into a greenhouse or conservatory over the winter months.

Olive Tree Care Guide
Give it a nice deep watering once the top inch has dried up and let the excess drain out, waterlogging can cause wet feet
Feed it with a balanced liquid fertiliser during the growing season
Olive trees are slow growers so you don’t need to do a load of pruning. If you want a nice bushy tree, you can pick some of the new leaves to give room for new shoots
