Olive I like the article

Temperatures 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. The Olive can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight.

Irrigation OliveTenere asciutto
Letís frequently check the soil of our bonsai, to avoid it from remaining dry for long periods of time. Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 10-11 days can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water .

Feed 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.

Adversity 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.

Substrate Olive
These plants need a substratum with an excellent drainage.
