My lovely brother bought me this for Xmas! I've got a couple of real sunny spots it could end up living in as it tends to like Mediterranean type conditions (although being up in the north east is a far cry from it 😂) but hopefully it will survive xx

I love olive trees! I’ve got 3 now and they all seem fine, and I’m living up north too, so hopefully yours will be fine too 🙂

I live in the north too and my olive tree thrives in a big terracotta pot underplanted with herbs. I can move it to a more sheltered spot in harsh weather and full sun in summer this way 😊💚

@daisy-jane @katgreen @karolinas thank you ladies for the reassurance. I'm housing it my outhouse passage for a bit to protect it xx

@GardeningNicW86 I have a good little frost free passage too and my herbs seem to survive well, just need to make sure it doesn't form a wind tunnel too 😊
