Olives

Everyone should grow an olive, even if it's just for ornamental purposes!  The olive fruits are of course a bonus and as the trees age not only do they produce the gorgeous gnarled trunks but they produce more fruit, which in turn means you can either eat them or make your own olive oil.

We have seen many olive trees planted in the ground that do well year after year, particularly on the coast lines in the South of England, however we grow our own trees in large pots (ones for sale are offered in smaller pots that should be potted up) and prefer to give them a bit of Winter protection (but then Challock can get pretty cold in the Winter!)  Olives will take temperatures of -10°C and whilst they need periods of this to produce flower (and fruit) prolonged periods of cold weather can inhibit fruit production.  Olive plants do like temperature changes, so a different day and night time temperature are essential for a happy tree.

A fully grown olive tree can reach 30 feet (10 metres) tall, but you do not have to let them get that big and they are slow growing so do not require a lot of pruning to keep them smaller.

Give an olive a home and bring a bit of the Mediterranean into your life!
