Double Spiral Stem Premium Olive Tree 8L Pot 1.4m Tall
Item number PC79J
Double Spiral Stem Premium Olive Tree 8L Pot 1.4m TallThe perfect long-lasting gift for gardeners and foodies alike, this unique olive tree will look fab on patios, decks and balconies across the country. These well-established plants have been professionally grown with a wonderful ball of foliage on top of an elegant twisted stem, and their lovely evergreen foliage gives year-round interest as the leaves have a silver underside to them, giving a two-tone effect to the whole plant. The standard trunk has been expertly formed into an attractive double spiral to give the tree a mature, gnarled effect and makes a super decorative addition to your home or garden. Despite their Mediterranean heritage, olives are surprisingly tough and will happily grow in the UK down to -8°C in winter - although it's best if you can protect them a little! Slow growing with its neatly shaped, evergreen foliage, this Olive is perfect in a border or patio pot and will also look great in a pot in a conservatory. Growing olive trees in pots is a great way to keep them as it means that even the smallest city garden or balcony can accommodate them - plus you get to take it with you if you move! Olives love hot, sunny spots and thrive in free draining soil, so we do recommend that they spend time outdoors in the summer to take full advantage of the sun. Olives are low maintenance, easy to grow and very slow growing, ideal for small gardens or busy gardeners. Your olive will produce small, creamy flowers in spring, which self-pollinate, and may even produce you small olive fruits in hot, dry summers when they get plenty of time to ripen. Supplied as a 1.4m (4.6ft) tall, standard form olive bush, grown with a double twisted stem, it's great value and will add an instant Italianate look to your garden!
