Hi all, .... What am I doing wrong?....
You're being impatient, that's all Olives are Mediterranean plants that love sunshine and warmth - they won't grow in the sort of temperatures we've had in the UK up until now. It'll wake up when the weather picks up.
The thing that finishes them off more often than not is having cold and wet feet - they can cope with cold but not cold and wet. Make sure the compost is free-draining and wrap the pot in bubblewrap in the winter and keep it dryish.
