We live in the north east of England and have a sheltered south facing garden, normally despite how far north we live things do very well in our garden. I bought my husband a 45 year old olive tree 3 years ago which we've planted in the garden and we've had the 3 harshest winters I can remember in the last 3 winters! This year the olive didn't get any leaves until mid May and they're still very small and sparce. Apart from the cold winters (unavoidable) I suspect that we've planted the tree in the wrong location as that area of the garden can get waterlogged in winter. I don't know what to do - will moving it kill it? Can I do anything to help it? Please advise.
