Help your plant to ease into its new location by pampering it a bit in its first few months-water regularly and use a slow-release, balanced fertilizer a few months after planting. Keep in mind that any tree grown in a container will dry out more quickly than a tree planted in the landscape.What watering method is best for my Mediterranean olive tree?
Although watering needs depend largely on your climate and your tree's size, olive trees perform best when given deep waterings and consistent moisture. As your tree becomes established, water it weekly or biweekly to ensure its success. After the first season, once per month watering may be sufficient. Keep in mind that plenty of water helps your olive tree produce the maximum amount of fruit.Can I start my Mediterranean olive tree indoors before moving outdoors?
You can start your olive tree indoors in a large pot and move it outdoors when the weather warms up in the spring. Wait until after the final frost date to take your tree back outside, and move it into the sun gradually so it won't be shocked by it. For the first week of its new outside existence, place your tree in a protected, shady location before setting out in full sunlight.
