Tips for and when to plant an Olive Tree

  1. Olive trees are very sensitive to low temperatures and especially in the first months when the roots begin to grow, therefore, we recommend that you place a thermometer. To control the levels of cold, at different times of the night, which is when the temperature drops the most?
  2. If the temperatures are very low, you should place incandescent lamps and regulate the night temperatures so that they remain at about 25 degrees Celsius, you can also use flowering lamps, but with their environmental thermostats so that they turn on and off automatically.
  3. It should be noted that the best time to plant olive cuttings is in the beginning of summer.
  4. You can also buy organic or worm compost at the market, which is very good for this type of crop and comes ready to use.
  5. The drip irrigation system can be done with a large water tank and a couple of meters of hoses.
  6. It is recommended that you add a few drops of anti-chlorine to the water tank for irrigation. Since the water that comes through the network has large amounts of chlorine. Or try to take the water that falls from the rain to fill this tank, since rainwater is the best.
  7. Cannot be irrigated with a lot of water, because if this happens the roots can be damaged and the olive tree will not grow.
  8. On the other hand, this tree can also be planted in large pots and placed inside the house, but in a place where sunlight hits it, which is one of its main sources of life.
  9. In the pot you have to place a mixture of organic fertilizer and the other half of sand, of course very well mixed so that the plant has everything it needs to grow and develop.
  10. Remember that the pot has to have some small holes at the bottom so that the excess water falls due to the force of gravity.
