Hi there,
many thanks to bamboo and Gnarly Gnome for prompt answers to my question about growth at the base of my olive tree. Can i update you with further info? There IS quite good growth on the top branches, but lots down below at the base. the tree is in a very large pot.



Janesusan, it would have been easier if you'd added this information beneath your original question, as if you were answering yourself - anyone who answered you will get a notification that something's been added, and would have seen it.
Having gone back to your earlier question, you obviously didn't mention you had growth in the upper branches - if you're happy that there's enough growth higher up, that its not sparse and sad looking with lots of dead branches, then remove the shoots coming up from the base.
