Yamadori Olive not picking up

Post  akhater on Fri Apr 12, 2013 1:15 pm

Last year I have collected 2 wild olives one of them reacted after 6 months and is doing fine today while the other is still green but no buds at all and I am worried about it.

last year it was in shade most of the time, I moved it to a sunnier position. anything else I can do to help it out?

the soil is inorganic (expanded clay with some peatmoss) and I didn't feed it

thanks

Sometimes olives need even two years to start moving by sending buds. As long as the trunk is still green do not give up. Last year I was going to discharge a large cutting but then I decided to remove the plastic bag which had been covering it for more than one and half years and then BOOM buds starting cropping up all over.

If it is green at the cambium it will be fine, just give it time.

Kind regards Yvonne

So check out Dugz olive tour unless you have already , amazing stuff two of the three threes that i have tried his technique on are flourishing. Seriously Olives trees regenerate roots when cut through their trunk, Dugz tour is a eye opener. I have several in the ground that i lifted out of a olive grove two years ago , a few months ago i took my trenching spade to it and since then it has been sulking . I think it will come around , i give it the occasional drink of superthrive .

They do tend to sulk , olives love sun and need lots of it ,place them in full sun for most of the day.I use seagrow (don't know if you can get it where you live) and i spray the hole tree it every 2 weeks helps to bud
