Frequently Asked Questions about olive trees
How old are your olive trees?
The olive trees we have in our nursery vary greatly in age. While we may be able to estimate the age of the younger ones, for the ancient olive trees we cannot give a precise age.
Can I use the olives for consumption?
You can attempt to brine the olives that your tree produces, however the yield is so small that it’s not feasible to grow them for olive production. In the UK the climate does not allow the plants to bear fruit in any commercial quantity. Therefore, the olive trees we sell are sold only for ornamental purposes only.
Are your olive trees Xyllela free?
All our olive trees are imported under the strictest phytosanitary certification and are inspected on arrival to meet all the UK plant health import regulations.
The partners we work with are reputable growers that take all the necessary measures to prevent Xyllela from spreading.
