Customer Tips & Reviews Olive - Manzanillo
Olive - Manzanillo
Very beautiful looking Olive tree, with beautiful foliage. Loves an organic rich soil that is well draining, moderate amount of watering, and mulch. Fertilise every few months with a slow release fertiliser. Tree has grown about 2 feet in 6 months.
BROWN HILL, VIC, Australia
Love the silver foliage and i hope to have my own olives one day :)
EASTWOOD, NSW, Australia
Very sturdy plant. No transplant shock. Only needs watering weekly - twice weekly. Has more than doubled in size since purchase. Very happy with purchase. I purchased the Frantoio as a cross pollinator (which has also thrived).

Pulled out replaced with malabar chestnut, had 3 olives in 10 long years so it paid the price.

Upper Ferntree Gully, VIC, Australia
No flowers yet, but still early days for an olive.Easy to maintain, it has a lovely upright habit which has naturally formed a vase-shape. It grows moderately each year, approximately a foot or so each Spring and Summer, and it copes with all the vag...
