Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant your Olive Tree, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the tree in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. If you’re container planting, simply select a container that’s twice the size of the tree’s root ball and follow in-ground instructions from there. Containers should also have drainage holes.
2. Watering: Your Dwarf Olive is drought tolerant after establishment, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water it about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry 2 or 3 inches down, it needs to be watered. Reduce watering frequency once your plant is established but continue to water container-planted Olives regularly.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with a general-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.
4. Pruning: Remove any old or damaged foliage, or damaged branching, and prune your tree during winter for healthy results.
