A gift from a friend.

A gift from a friend.

Last year a friend brought to me a wild olive that was dig out from his field. The tree was potted in a flower plastic pot using field soil. I left the tree in peace awaiting for the new growth. By the end of the last growing season I wasn’t happy with the extend of the new growth so a month ago I decided to repot it to a more suitable substrate. An initial styling took place prior to reppoting.

Last photo is a poor virtual, My vision as they say these days Smile

I feel that olives like to be in almost 100% inorganic
They surely like to be kept on the dry side
This tree was potted in dirt when it was dug.

All the wild olives i have are very vigorous growers, with just 1 exception which actually is growing better after some major pruning.

I agree with the dry side, not sure about the almost 100% inorganic.

my experience says that they like the almost 100% inorganic, as long as they are fed (fertiliser, full strength) very, very often...almost daily Smile
