Exposure OliveSole pieno
Letís remember that bonsai usually are grown in quite contained containers; this is why we suggest moving the vases in a slightly shaded place during the hottest weeks of the summer. These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.the Olive should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.

Watering OliveTenere asciutto
Letís frequently check the soil of our bonsai, to avoid it from remaining dry for long periods of time. Water rarely, about once every 10-11 days with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Fertilization Olive
During the spring months letís fertilize our bonsai plants using a specific fertilizer every 20-25 days; during this period of the year the fertilizer must be rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of new vegetation.

Treatments Olive
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

These plants need a substratum with an excellent drainage.
