Growing tips:

Location: Outside, the olive tree is used to the Mediterranean climate and enjoys the sun. For proper development, it needs warmth and the benefits of the sun. Despite its hardiness and resistance to temperature changes, in winter, it is best placed in a cold greenhouse or bright unheated veranda as it does not tolerate lower temperatures.

Watering: Water regularly while allowing the root ball to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid excess water. Watering will be done regularly, in hot weather, it's every day ! On the other hand, in winter, water according to the soil monitoring you do. Thanks to the rain and cold, you won't necessarily need to water regularly since the substrate will remain moist.

To do it well: Don't hesitate to water the entire root ball up to the roots, the water will drain away through the holes under the pot or bathe it in water (drenching) for a few minutes, to be sure to water it well. We do not recommend putting a cup/container underneath your pot as the water will stagnate and can cause root rot. (Too much water = asphyxiation).

Repotting & Substrate: Repotting should be done every 3 to 5 years in the spring. Its current substrate is field soil + potting soil (peat/horse manure/bark/pozzolana). The next time you repot, you can mix more draining substrate such as: akadama, pumice, kiryu... Just be careful not to disturb the root ball, don't destroy the whole root ball.

Many bonsai react noticeably when repotted at the wrong time or too drastically. For this reason, you should cut as few roots as possible.

Waist: Prune at the end of winter, in March-April, in addition to maintenance pruning. Structural pruning is important to do at this time, as it will allow vigorous growth during the following spring.

Fertilization: In the nursery, we use blue tomato/flower fertilizer NPK 12 12 17. Put a handful of them on the substrate (small or large depending on the size of the pot) from spring from May to October, every 2 months, alternating chemical/organic.
