Are you also someone who would like a Mediterranean ambiance in your garden? With an olive tree on the patio you'll feel like you're in Italy or Greece. The olive tree works well when combined with other Mediterranean plants, such as a Bougainvillea with its abundance of flowers or a wonderfully fragrant Tuscan jasmine or lavender. Olive trees have leaves in shades ranging from light green to greyish and are naturally resilient to drought. Are you planting the olive tree in a pot? Then water it regularly (depending on the weather). Although the olive tree is moderately hardy, we advise you to move it indoors during winter. Plus, this means that you can enjoy a lovely olive tree in your home during the cold winter months.
