Olive Trees & Mediterranean Plants

Olea Europaea

Olives (Olea europaea) are evergreen trees that will add a Mediterranean touch to the garden. They are suited to garden or container cultivation. In their mediterranean homelands, they can grow up to a lofty 8-15 metres at their tallest but here in the UK much shorter - 5 metres would be more likely as a maximum.

Olea Europaea are quite hardy and well able to tolerate most conditions in the UK and thrive best in poor, well-drained soil but will grow in most soil, even clay if well-drained.
