Found my orignal posting, so as an update the olive tree is amazing this year, I took the advise from Matty2, BusyBee 2, Dove from above, and Foodie 40. I left it in the south-facing very open porch and kept it nearly dry all winter. I was going to bubblewrap the pot but we only had frost about 4 times. It has rewarded me with lots of leaves and flowers, and didn't shed any leaves during winter.
I have just made a video of the repotting to go on youtube for our gardening club. I repotted as per advise - repotted it into gritty compost with some JI, and will not put it indoors again. Sited it against a heat retaining red-brick house wall hoping the flowers will turn to olives!
photo attached, not sure my position agiant the hous
e wall shows off it's best attributes....
The close-up of the flowers which will hoepfully turn into olives- fingers crossed... anyone in the UK with Olives on their Olive tree?, or France.....any photos?
Brilliant - it's looking great
