Olive Standard Tree

Olea europaea Trees

from From £24.99 (ex. VAT)
( £29.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

Olive standards make a stunning feature tree and are good in acid or alkaline soils.  Being Mediterranean plants, they are a bit sensitive to very cold weather but with a bit of care, they make a fantastic long term addition to the garden.  Many Olive trees are grown in containers which is sensible because they can be moved in winter into a more sheltered situation.  Generally we recommend positioning your Olive tree towards the south or west, not in a position where it will get harsh north or east winds.  The roots don't appreciate being waterlogged so make sure the soil is sufficiently well draining.  A good tip if you are planning to keep an Olive tree in a container is to line the inside of the container with bubble wrap which will protect the roots from the worst of winter weather.  Don't worry too much about the hardiness of Olives - generally they are absolutely fine in the south and west of the UK, protected coastal areas and urban areas where temperatures tend to stay higher in winter.

You can easily prune these plants to maintain a good shape.  We suggest a light prune in mid spring and a heavier prune in mid summer but they do like to have warm days after pruning during the recovery time so pick your pruning days carefully.

These small trees are generally planted out into containers for outside front doors or patio doors (matching pairs look great but one on its own is good too).

These are amongst our most popular gift trees and like all our trees, can be gift wrapped and delivered on your chosen date.

Delivery Timescales

All trees are carefully packed by our experienced team. Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order, with many being despatched to our tried and tested couriers within 24 hours. To be on the safe side allow up to 10 working days for despatch. These trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your delivery. You can give instructions on where to leave it via the checkout or send us an email (

There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached and mature trees (trees over 2.5m in height) because we group orders together by geographic area for specialist delivery - we will contact these customers to notify them of the delivery date and whether the delivery driver needs help unloading the trees.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge, although we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.
