Manzanillo Olive Trees – 50mm pots
Our Manzanillo olive trees are quality commercial stock grown in a professional nursery in south-east Queensland.
The trees are 5-6 months old, 15-20cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into a larger pot.
Manzanillo is an Spanish table fruit variety that widely cultivated throughout Spain and many parts of the world. It is the main table variety in Australia and is renown for its excellent quality medium to large sized fruit that can be pickled both green and black. It is an adaptable tree that is a proven performer in both warm and cold climates. It is tolerant to frost, coastal conditions and salinity.
We suggest that initially you plant the olive trees into larger pots and grow them on for three to four months before planting in the garden. In the pots, we recommend only using premium potting mix with some added controlled release fertilizer (Osmocote/ Nutricote etc). Garden soil is not suitable for use in pots.
Once the plants reach around 40 cm tall they are ready to plant in the garden, you will need to keep weeds away from the tree and initially water every couple of days or so to ensure that the roots are kept moist. Mulching around the plant and protecting it with a tree guard is recommended.
We only send trees on Monday to ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
Please note: due to quarantine restrictions plants cannot be sent to Northern Territory ,Tasmania or Western Australia.
