Olive trees can be placed in a pot. It is important that there are enough holes in the bottom of the pot so that excess water can drain off. First fill the pot with hydro grains or a layer of gravel. This creates the perfect drainage.
Olive trees inside?
If you place a pot indoors, it is important that you choose a place with sufficient daylight. An olive tree needs a lot of light. If a tree cannot get more than six hours of light a day, consider providing plenty of artificial light.
Potted olive trees and frost
Please note that an olive tree cannot withstand severe frost. During severe frost, wrap a pot in several layers of bubble wrap. This material has an insulating effect. This prevents the frost from reaching the roots. You can also place the pot on a piece of Styrofoam, but that is rather difficult if the pot weighs hundreds of kilos. An alternative is to tie a winter cover or thick fleece around the pot. By the way, you do not need to protect the trunk.
