Gnarled Olive Trees. Hojiblanca.
These incredibly beautiful Mature Olive Trees are grown in a bonsai style. Strong, relatively short but really gnarled, the trunks are totally unique appearing more of an orange colour than those of regular Olive trees. This is due to the way they have been fertilized using Iron Chelate as a spray over quite a long period of time which in turn has produced this stunning colour. Each tree has a large beautiful crown of silvery green leaves. Perfect as an ornamental, evergreen tree, it can be left natural or pruned to keep it within it's space limits. All hand-picked by ourselves, they are a real statement tree.
Gnarled Olive Tree instantly brings a piece of the Mediterranean to your garden. It has become increasingly popular in the UK as it can tolerate temperatures down to -15 degrees and is very wind resistant, but if you would like fruit, a sunny spot is better. It has been grown in the Mediterranean for centuries for oil and fruit production.
Caring for an Olive Tree is easy, remember they are a fruit tree so they will need regular watering and feeding. Feed your Olive Trees with a balanced fertilizer such as 'Olive Focus' once a fortnight from May to October to ensure your Olive Tree grows well in the UK.
