PROBLEM

Posted: 22/08/2016 at 12:36

Hello Stephen 


Can you tell us more about this flower bed please?  


How big is it?   Is it up against a wall?  Which way does it face?


Is the soil clay or gritty?


Could you post a photo please?

Repotting into a much bigger pot

Olives need good drainage - I agree with Verdun -  the pots will need weight for stability - use John Innes loam-based compost (not lightweight multi-purpose compost) and add a good proportion of coarse horticultural grit.  I would use 3 parts John Innes to 1 part grit.  That should ensure that the roots don't suffer from being too wet when the temperatures drop as they do in the UK.

Mentioning professional trading names.

As Nutcutlet has said - there's a huge difference between a personal recommendation based on the experience of a forum member, and the attempts by some companies to post advertisements without paying the website.  


As far as I'm aware, there's never been a problem with posting personal recommendations.


I'm sure the GW team would let us know if there was. 


After all, if mentioning trade names was forbidden, it would mean that the Original Poster would have to change his name   and that would never do!

It sounds to me as if the atmosphere is too dry - do you mist the leaves? 


Place the pot on a tray of pebbles and keep the pebbles moist.  Also ensure the plant isn't getting any direct sunlight - it may need to be moved into a shadier cooler corner for the summer.
