I've reported my olive trees and added new "professionally" made compost, with all the necessary nutrients!

You're welcome. I got my olive trees a couple of days ago, so I bought the food and I'm waiting for the compost to arrive, again especially for olive trees. Ok.. Thanks for this! @sharonhayden

I'm good too thanks, about to hop in the bath lol.. Not sure what yellow leaves mean, I'll look it up. It could mean it needs feeding. @sharonhayden

Hello Andreas @kamaki . I came across your olive trees as my lovely wife made an impulse today and has bought 2 the exact same these. She is now thinking she had made a bad buy and that they won't survive here (we are in Glasgow!). How have yours done the last year and have you any tips? Thank you! Craig

Hi Craig! They'll survive as long as they have good drainage, mine are doing nicely. @craigh7 Thank you for getting in touch, I appreciate it!

Thanks Andreas @kamaki . Are yours still in the pots or have you planted them? Did you leave them out or take them in during winter? I'll be posting a photo up shortly of ours.

They are in large pots with holes in the bottom, I feed them with olive feed once a month, they are hardy, but its the drainage like I said, they can't take being water logged. Being from a hot climate, they prefer the dry, warm weather. I leave them out in the winter. @craigh7

But, saying that if it does get very icey like I know it does in Scotland, it wouldn't harm bringing them in. @craigh7
