Olea europaea – Bush Form
Olea europaea has been cultivated and grown for its fruit and oil by people as far back as the ancient Greeks and Romans, but it is nonetheless hardy enough to be suitable for British gardens.
Olea europaea in bush form is a small to medium sized evergreen shrub with a thin hard wood trunk, iconic silver-grey green leathery leaves in a natural shape, and sweetly scented flowers. All of our olive trees are sourced in person from handpicked Spanish growers with high quality stock.

Care & Size Guidance
This evergreen bush is hardy and, from its coastal heritage, can withstand strong winds and even minus temperatures. So, despite their Mediterranean roots, olives are perfectly suitable for British gardens.
Olea europaea is a very slow growing plant and is tolerant of pruning, so it’s unlikely to outgrow the space it’s in.
