I have quite a large Olive Tree approx 6 ft tall in a large pot. We pruned and shaped it last year and it responded very well producing a large healthy head with some flowers. Well this year, it has just stood dormant, having lost all it leaves in the harsh winter, I have cut it back to green but it is just stood there without a single bud, is it dead or dying ?? Thanks



Well it doesn't sound good - you don't say where you are in the UK, but its possible the pot froze during winter and the plant's roots have been damaged. If the wood is still green and moist, give it a good feed and another month to see if it starts growing.
