Olive trees come in all shapes and sizes, and these are the very smallest we offer – but small doesn’t mean any less beautiful or mesmerising to look at.

These compact olive trees are bursting with character, and each one is uniquely shaped – no two are ever the same. Ranging in height from approximately 2ft to 6ft, the young trees make a great addition to any indoor or outdoor space and can live for hundreds of years if they’re well cared for.

Their smaller size also makes them ideal for planting in pots; they can live very healthily in an appropriately-sized pot while looking the part too.

After something a little bigger? We’ve got you covered; take a look at our medium gnarled olive trees and large gnarled olive trees elsewhere on the site. We offer a wide range of olive trees so browse our stock to find your favourite.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you keep olive trees small?

It depends on which variety of olive tree you opt for. If you’re limited on space, it’s best to look at dwarf varieties of the olive tree, as many conventional varieties can grow past 10ft tall. Pruning the tree’s tips into the desired shape also helps keep its growth in check.

How do you prune small olive trees?

Olive trees grow quite slowly, so don’t need pruning all that often, but it’s best to prune them in late spring or early summer. Any dead or dying branches should be removed to ensure the tree remains in good health, as well as any branches which block light from getting to the centre of the tree. Branches rubbing together can also affect growth, so it’s important to keep an eye out for that too.

How do you repot small olive trees?

Depending on the type of olive tree you have, it may need repotting every three-four years as it continues to grow and deplete the nutrients in the soil. It’s best to repot the tree in early spring, and it’s important to choose an appropriately-sized container to allow the tree to continue growing.

When repotting, the roots should be pruned to encourage further growth, and a fresh layer of gravel should be added below the soil to assist with drainage.
