Our half standard Olive tree are the most affordable and flexible way to grow an olive, small enough to be slipped into smaller borders or be kept containerised. They can be trained and trimmed into shape for a formal situation or allowed to grow, in time, into a spreading evergreen tree. However you choose to grow your olives they will lend an unmistakeable air of the Mediterranean to your garden.
Our bush or natural form Olive tree have been grown so as to keep all the lower side branches, as opposed to having them pruned away to keep the trunk clear. In this way they can be used as a basis to create dense topiary columns or spirals, trimmed into tall columnar trees or grow into naturally shaped bushes and trees that are densely clothed down the entire height with branches and leaves.
The Mature Olive trees are large enough to use as a specimen yet easily accommodated in the mixed border, our mature size Olea europea are the perfect plant to instantly lend that air of the Mediterranean to your garden. Once planted there are many options open to you - they can be allowed to grow into a small tree or kept pruned to keep within limits, become a part of a formal scheme or just allowed to grow naturally. Whatever you do, they never fail to make an impact!
The Ancient Olive trees are the ultimate impact plant for the Mediterranean style garden: the fissured, twisted, gnarled and knobbly trunks on these ancient olive trees just ooze character and immediately captivate. To display them to best effect, try to give space around the plant, preferrably in its own raised bed with low-growing companions - lavander is the classic association. A casually fallen terracotta oil jar perfects the often used but never beaten vignette.

A superb tree. Worth every penny. Absolutely delighted. Delivery man did a good job getting it down my sideway to the patio area. I thought that the shipping costs were a bit steep though which could be a bit off putting.

The tree arrived promptly and was in good condition. The branches are rather 'bunched up'.

I live on the 18th floor, and while the terrace enjoys loads of sun, it is very windy, and dry (OK, I forget to water things). But the olive tree has lasted 2 years already. It has grown into a genuinely windswept form, which I find rather attractive.

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!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm thrilled with the standard olive tree I bought from you yesterday - looks wonderful by the front door. Thanks Liz
