The Olive Tree is a hugely popular tree here but we still think of it as a Mediterranean tree which gives it a slightly exotic feel and with its stunning silver grey foliage and gnarled bark on its older specimens it creates real focal points in our usual darker green gardens. These beautiful trees come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, some are single stemmed with nice loose heads and some have more clipped forms with multiple stems others and large mature specimens with trunks that you would struggle to get your arms around with the quirkiest of foliage, this is why we have decided to show each tree individually so that you can see each tree
Here we have two options, both with the same girth if stem 40-50cm and both in a similar sized pot of 90L pot, the first has an overall height of approximately 160cm and a lovely full foliage head. The second as you can see from the image has more branching and because it has been clipped to create the shape it hasn’t as full a foliage at this stage but over time will create a looser look. Both are beautiful just really down to your personal preference.
