Olea europaea Olive Tree

(1 customer review)


In recent years, the sight of a beautiful Olive tree has not been confined to the Mediterranean regions… it is now not unusual to see them growing into fabulous specimens in the UK. If you select the right spot and plant thoughtfully, the beautiful grey green foliage and distinctive trunk reminiscent of a Tuscan landscape can evoke the atmosphere of  a peaceful, relaxed area.  Looks fabulous when under-planted with lavender or rosemary. At Big Plant we select only the toughest and most reliable varieties from the best nurseries in the Mediterranean. We have been growing olive trees in milder micro-climates in the UK particularly southern and western regions, coastal and urban locations for the past decade with great success, so why not try one in your garden?

We have many other larger sizes both ancient and full standard available but due to transport difficulties prefer to deliver these ourselves. Please enquire if you would like to know more.

Please note that all of our Olives are responsibly sourced from reputable growers in Xylella fastidiosa free regions.  Plants are tested for Xylella before leaving the supplier and are then tested again by our authorities (APHA/DEFRA) on arrival.

**Spoilt for choice? We have a vast selection of beautiful plants – something for everyone.  We recognise that delivery can be costly furthe afield.  If you’re a bit further away and you’re not in a mad hurry, do make an enquiry.  We can do delivery runs all over the country so if we can get a full van in your general location then we will deliver your beautiful plants in person.**

    We chose a beautiful Olive (90L Bowl) and were delighted to receive it in excellent condition and with a very healthy root system. Once again special thanks to Mark who was so helpful and took great care with the delivery! Will be back for more.
