This ia a very beautiful old tree, full of character and boasts a very large girth. This particular tree is very gnarled. Our olives are all inspected by DEFRA and certified Xylella free.
We have a wide selection of hardy olive trees for sale, from young specimens to large ancient, gnarled olive trees. Our hardy olive trees are all hand-sourced from the mountainous regions of Valencia, meaning they are very used to a cold environment during the winter. Larger varieties are able to withstand temperatures comfortably to around minus -15c and below. Olive trees are immediately reminiscent of the Mediterranean, they are evergreen with lovely pale grey-green foliage and tiny fragrant, cream flowers followed by olives in the summer months. The olive tree thrives in full sun, prefers free-draining soil and can cope very well with the wind, even salt laden winds at seaside locations.
