Bring a warm Mediterranean feel to your garden this summer with these gorgeous mini Olive Trees! Perfect for patios, terraces, balconies or gardens with limited space, these well-established plants have been professionally grown with a wonderful ball of foliage aloft an elegant stem.
With their neatly shaped, evergreen grey-green foliage, these Olive trees are ideal in patio pots placed either side of doorways, gateways or pathways but they would also look great in pots in a conservatory too.
They love hot, sunny spots and thrive in free draining soil. They produce small, but insignificant creamy flowers in spring, which self-pollinate, and may produce small olive fruits in hot, dry summers with plenty of time to ripen. They look so exotic and Mediterranean though, you should grow them anyway!
Despite their Mediterranean heritage, olives are surprisingly tough and will happily grow in the UK down to -8C in winter. They are low maintenance, easy to grow and very slow growing, ideal for small gardens or busy gardeners. Great value and will add a touch of class to your patio!
