8ft Gnarled Olive Tree in 160l tub
Looking to make a big statement in your garden? An Oversized Gnarled Olive Tree will definitely make a BIG impression. At over 6ft, this is one olive tree nobody can miss. When Olive Trees reach this size, the bark becomes cracked or gnarled adding to the character of the Olive Tree. This creates some really unique detail making each tree easily identifiable. When we get a new oversized Olive Tree, we will add it to the drop down list below and also add some pictures to try and capture as much of the detail as possible. If you would like any additional information, please let us know.
Planting & Positioning
Olive Trees this size are incredibly heavy, so we advise you take care when choosing the placement of your gnarled olive tree. It will need as much sunlight as possible but a little shade is ok. Also, all Olive Trees (especially older olive trees) should be protected from wind. This is because although they are hardy down to approximately -10C, wind chill can be devastating as it can penetrate the bark. It then may be an idea to construct a planter around your tree rather than try and put in a new container or plant it – although if you can plant, ensure the soil is well drained.
As this will require a dedicated delivery service, we will aim to place your oversized olive as close to the final position as possible however, if you have special delivery requirements, please let us know and we will make arrangements for you.
