Olive Tree care indoors....losing it leaves- what am I doing wrong?

Posted: 22/02/2014 at 19:34

Moved mine into GH(cold) in case very cold weather. Was asking them if they wanted to go outside now. CH house/conservatory is too warm for them. I do keep them on the dry side all the time.

Also always have them on pot feet, seems to work has them a few years now

It's just called a Credale (or similar) double. They had lots of different ones. I think it must be a nursery that propagates there own and some come out really good. Think this one was spectacular and was looking for a double. May have escaped the folk who look for winning ones.

Bought it from a local nursery.

I have 3 now (different sorts)waiting till I can plant them. This one though I am considering putting in a pot then  can bring it onto the patio just when winter needs a cheer up

Whoops just realised there is a hellebore thread.

Off for a bath now - hard day in garden

Read that post as native Pimms LOL

Have seen a huge fat bee going in and out of crocus this morning - you know what it's like - rushed in for camera Only 3 frames left on card - took photos - bee so laden with pollen wasn't going very quickly and result- one yukky out of focus photo. Not posting that but did think you may like to see my hellebore bought last week (still  not planted - too wet)

Well have wandered in a couple of time recently and last night was ott.

I see it's now sorted, but like a lot of you makes me think twice about posting. I know I haven't been here much, you know why, and beginning to feel better.

Still lets hope it's over and done with

 

Sorry Hello all of you.

Have been AWOL but will be here a bit more frequently now.

We are clearing part of the garden. OH has strict instructions to go very carefully as there is lean to wood and lots of leaves (very deep layer) that would be an ideal place for them to go. However have never seen or heard one here. 

Thought of Dove while I was giving out take care instructions

 

Wishful thinking probably
