Olives

Bring a touch of the Mediterranean to the garden with our olive plants! With shimmering silvery foliage, these evergreen trees are drought tolerant and fairly hardy. Hot summers in a south garden may even produce a crop of attractive fruit, that can be enjoyed after special preparation. A unique gift, often associated with peace, the olive plant would be a lovely addition to any garden.

Olive plants are best suited to growing in large containers, so that they can be given a sunny spot to bask in over the summer, but moved to a frost free space over winter. If you have a sheltered garden they can be planted in soil, but make sure to cover the branches with horticultural fleece in the winter. Our olives are delivered in pots with appropriate soil, where they will be happy until repotting or planting in spring.

The fruit will be ready for harvesting in autumn. The ripe green fruit will eventually turn black and firm. Green olives will need soaking in salted water for several days to remove the bitterness. Black olives will need dry curing in salt for several weeks until dehydrated, and then stored in olive oil or brine.

National free delivery is standard, or named day available to ensure the gift arrives at the ideal time. A personal and thoughtful gift already, we also offer gift options and personalised messages to make these gifts uniquely yours.

Sustainable gifts

Although perhaps an unusual gift, the olive plant will be well received. Beautiful green foliage and edible fruits mean that it is practical as well as attractive. Send as a birthday gift to those that love olives. How about a retirement present to bring a touch of the Mediterranean to the garden? Or send as a traditional peace offering to a friend or family member. Birthdays, anniversaries, and any celebration, the olive plant makes a beautiful and sustainable gift.
