Description

Using jumbo Kalamata olives for landscaping adds both aesthetic and culinary value. They offer a beautiful evergreen screening while also providing delicious fruit. Mediterranean gardens are known for their robust, low-maintenance plants that thrive in sunny, dry conditions. Incorporating drought-tolerant plants like lavender, rosemary, and succulents can complement the olives while requiring minimal upkeep.

Commonly Asked Questions

When do olives start producing fruit?

Kalamata olive trees typically start producing fruit after around three to five years of growth, although this can vary depending on factors like the tree’s health, growing conditions, and cultivar. Once established, they generally produce fruit in the late summer to early autumn months, with the exact timing varying based on climate and local conditions. Patience is key, as olive trees may take a few years to reach maturity and start bearing fruit, but once they do, they can provide a bountiful harvest for many years to come.

 

Can you keep Olives inside?

Although olives are an outdoor plant, yes you can, however there are a few things to consider. Olives will grow slower in a pot, inside the home. Try and position your olive near a window to maximize sun. Keep a close eye on the overall health of your olive as they will be more prone to disease and poor health indoor. Rotate your pot every few months to encourage even growth over the plant. Also keep an eye on the moisture levels as potted plants will dry out more quickly than if they were planted in the ground.
