TOPIC: Little olive that got smaller

Little olive that got smaller 1 year 9 months ago #21348

Nice, I love olive trees, remember them in original size in Spain. In Indonesia they just come on the market, but mostly thin and I haven't find any to take.
Will watch closely in the future.

I feel like the shari could do with some more work. Maybe it needs extending down a bit?
Obviously this is just my opinion, it looks great regardless.

Yes the deceptiveness is it's strongest aspect, in might just turn out right nice.
Maybe it;s not all that small, look at those cats

Hm.. nah. the shari is just there because of the trunk chop which will not heal over. I kept it as small as realistic when removing the top :)

Hi there
I have a question about my olive. When I received it a few of the tips of the leaves where black , I thought it was effects of the transport I then went to italy for two weeks and now that I'm back I noticed a few more where like that , have you ever had this problem? Or do you know what causes it ?

OK, that seems logical. As I said, it's great either way.

I would prefer it if people would post their questions about their own trees, in a separate thread instead oif hijacking one.

The black tips could be a burn issue.

@Enaisio I assumed that you had looked up 'Black leaf tips' and not got an answer, but just in case www.gardenguides.com/98626-causes-black-...s-indoor-plants.html

@Leatherback Agreed that it's annoying but, seeing as Enaisio has already posted the question, making another topic would be useless at this point.
