STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Plant olive trees in moist soil. Water regularly until established. Prune olive trees at the leaf nodes to encourage more growth. Olives are fragile and should be harvested carefully.

Looking good...

My olive trees arrived in perfect condition- you certainly don't skimp when it comes to making sure the trees were secure in the box. I wasn't able to plant the trees immediately so I followed the instructions, allowing them to rest. A week later I planted them and so far so good! They seem to be doing well and I hope they continue to do so.

Mostly healthy

Came with a little bit of powdery mildew on it, but some diluted neem oil is taking care of it. Growing like crazy!
