Suspect you may have a sedge Katfish...carex pendula,,maybe, which basically is a weed.  They tend to take over 

anything you don't like get rid of and plant what you know you do want.

Olive Trees - new shoots going limp

Posted: 08/04/2016 at 09:52

Simon 

olives are relatively hardy...much hardier than orginally thought.  Down here in (balmy) W Cornwall they are planted as features in our local towns

so.....yes, they were shocked. temperature apart the wind, sun,  rain, everything outside is so different to being indoors.

out during the day, back in at night time and do this for a couple of weeks if you can.

in mid spring cut off unhealthy leaves and prune back a little

They do have dead looking brittle stems right now.  Charity said "slightly green" so I am very optimistic they will be ok 

let us know when they shoot Charity

Charity, relax.  Prob they are fine.

they are hardier than people think.  Mine too look like dead wood but it is early yet.

when they shoot trim off the dead stems back to those shoots
