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. We suggest growing the the Olive in the garden; these are very rustic plants.We suggest to position the the Olive in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.

Water OliveTenere asciutto
Letís frequently check the soil of our bonsai, to avoid it from remaining dry for long periods of time. Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 10-11 days .

Fertilize 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.

Pests 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.

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