Olea europaea - MatureEuropean olive
The European olive tree is an unmistakable signature plant for travellers in the Mediterranean parts of the world, where it has been grown for centuries for its oil and fruit production. Recent years have seen the olive tree becoming increasingly popular as an ornamental tree in the UK as word of its hardiness and general robust nature has spread.
Full sun and sharp drainage are the key requirements for olive trees and although ultimately a large olive tree plants can easily be confined to any size space by pruning of the branches - annually if needs be.
Olive trees available at the Palm Centre nursery in a range of sizes and from Ancient, Mature, Bush form and Half Standard olive trees in pots. Buy your olive tree online. We deliver nationwide.

We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.
The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.
Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property. The standard delivery location is the border of your property or the entrance of a communal space. If other arrangements need to be made, please get in touch with us as soon as the order is placed.
Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it.
With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.
Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.
Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.
For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.
All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Really pleased with our tree. Better than expected quick delivery and well packaged so no damage. Tree looks really healthy and bushy just what we wanted.
Really pleased - helpful on the phone - tree arrived in lovely condition well packaged and quickly Thank you soo Much
I bought one of these from you ten years ago, at Hampton Court Flower show. It was for my neighbour, who planted it in the front garden and ignored it. It has grown brilliantly, and I would recommend both the Palm Centre and an Olive Tree to anyone. If you can't afford a bigger one, just buy a little one and wait!
