SOIL

Olives prefer well drained, low to medium fertile soil.

PLANTING SITE

Olives grow best in sunny, sheltered sites. 

CLIMATE

Olive trees will grow well in most areas of New Zealand, as long as the right variety is selected for the climate conditions. 

WATERING

Water well during the early stages, during long dry periods and when the fruit is developing.

PESTS & DISEASES

Olives are relatively hardy to pests and diseases. The main problem is ‘peacock spot’ on the leaves, which can often be attributed to poor tree health. 

PLANTING IDEAS

Olive trees are great for a variety of garden uses, including specimen trees, hedges and even espalier training. 

FRUIT

Olives ripen in Autumn.

POLLINATION

Some varieties are self fertile, but as a general rule more than one variety of olive should be planted to ensure good pollination if fruit is desired. 

TREE SIZE

Olive trees can reach 10m in height, though this can be contained by pruning or growing in a large container.
