I have bought a 180 cm tall olea europaea. At the moment i have it outside, in my garden. But how long can I have it outside and if i want to repot it what kind of soil shall i use?
I read that John Innes No3 was a good option, is it?
Kind regards
Eric

Hello, Duke Eric,
Olea are frost tender so bring it in or move it against a warm, sunny wall before the danger of frost. Repot in No3 with added sharp sand. Make sure it gets plenty of light over the winter. Add this to you list of 'Plants I Have' and you will get full care instructions.
All the best,
Kathy C

We have been given an 80cm Olea Europaea. At present it is indoors due to the weather but I am assuming it should not / cannot be indoors. Is this correct?
Also, what do we do about watering....I am assuming it should be kept on the dry side of moist...is this correct ?
