i have an olive tree that is not doing very well lost a lot of leaves and i would have thought it should be growing some more by now it was planted summer 2010 sonia



Hello, has it been affected by the frost, are there signs of new growth/buds, try a few bark/stem scrapings for healthy wood, if so be a little patient, are you over watering it?, however i have seen a few olive trees in pots that have been totally killed off to the bad winter weather.julien.

I've a similar problem, mine has lost all bar 4 leaves, which all look pretty dead. Some of the stems towards the base of the tree have healthy wood underneath, but the top half doesn't... Should I give it a good prune to the healthy wood?
