Olive Tree, Potted
Please join the wait list for this product.
Olive trees have a long history as one of the oldest cultivated trees in the world. The Common Olive Tree (Olea europaea) is a popular variety for houseplants. It features small, silvery, gray-green leaves and a graceful silhouette that give it an elegant appearance.
Olive trees thrive in Mediterranean climates, and require plenty of sunlight. South and west-facing windows are ideal for direct sunlight
They are relatively easy to care for, naturally resistant to drought and pests and are pet friendly. Avoid overwatering and ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogged roots.
Use a balanced liquid fertilizer weekly at quarter strength or at half strength every two weeks. Stop fertilizing during the winter when plant growth slows.
Please note that the plants you receive may be smaller and less mature than the ones photographed. They will be eager for growth in their new home!

Live plants are shipped on a weather-permitting basis. If the forecast calls for extreme heat or cold temperatures along the shipping route, we'll hold your plant for the minimum number of days required to ship it safely. Temperature swings in shipping can sometimes cause a temporary shock to a plant causing one or two leaves to yellow. This does not impact the health of the plant. Simply remove the leaves and care for the plant as directed. Live plants cannot be returned or exchanged. Contact us immediately if any issues with your order.
