Wild Olive

I collected this tree on our annual club dig with more than a little help from a long-suffering friend.
Great prospects I believe:

are you just taking a huge cutting? Does Olive root that well in SA?

If properly taken care of after collection there is no problem with good rooting, the stored energy pulls them through.

Yes - our climate is kind to us.

Good luck and enjoy the journey of this awesome olive. Hope that you even could you use the lower part too.

Thanks Cosmos - Yes the bottom off-cut has been kept by my friend who plans to thin it down and polish it for presentation.
Preventing it from splitting will be difficult I think.
