hi i have an olive tree which i planted in the garden several years ago,and it does fine on its own,ihave to prune it sometime and have hundreds of olives on it most yrs tho sadly our winters prevent them ripening ! they are very hardy and reguire little attention, and of course reminds me of Corfu !!!

We had olives on our tree last year and because it was in the conservatory they ripened. I did actually bite into one but didn't eat it cos not sure if it was a proper edible olive or it had to be soaked in brine or something! Leaving it out this year so don't anticipate I will have to put the nets down quite yet!

I've had an olive tree for more than 15years and its always been outside, it is bonzied so is no trouble moveing into shelter when winter winds come.

I've got an olive tree in a large tub outside on the patio, but in a sheltered area from the wind. Have had it for a couple of years, but never had any olives on it. I get little white blossoms but they never develop into olives. Is this normal or should I be doing something else with it.
