Such a pretty little tree,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Olivia Europeana Olive tree - Small but mature with thick stem - ideal small gift
I was so impressed with this when it arrived. It is of note to say that I am in no way a gardener, so I always try to buy plants that are at least a little on their way so as to somehow prevent the chance of me accidentally killing them off, but this is such a beautiful little thing and it came already at a decent size, well packaged in a pot. I have chosen to re-pot it in a larger planter and sit it near my patio windows as opposed to putting it outside, they say when this plant is young it is best to spend the first couple of winters indoors, but this is just according to my brief reading online. Either way I feel it is too attractive a plant to simply hand over to the gardener to be planted amongst the masses outside, so I am going to keep it indoors until it either grows or fails on me! I shall be asking advice on this one though, because I have always wanted an olive tree and it has received many compliments so far. I think it would make the most excellent gift, much better than a standard bunch of flowers, chocolates, or get well present etc. Very happy.
