Olive in Sweden? Wow! flutter eyelashes

This being said, it looks healthy so far and maybe, thanks to climate warming, you might be able to have it survive until it becomes a decent tree.

After all, there must be panthers in some Swedish zoo...

Why don't you try spruce instead?

Sorry to be so blunt, but I can't understand why some want to grow species that will eventually, inevitably, die when they're grown outside their natural range and while at the same time they have lots of other species that they can cultivate, enhance, make beautiful in a long, healthy life.

But yes, you can even cultivate bananas in the Antarctic, under artificial light, with artificial heat, artificial humidity. But at what cost and what for?

Lingonsylt, abarber, jordgubbar (although the best ones in the region are from Norway), yes but bananas and olive oil, er, permit me to be very skeptical...

alain - many many MANY of us have trees that are not naturalized to our specific locale...
an olive in sweden is not dissimilar to a ficus in wisconsin...

but i suppose you are to be applauded for devoting your bonsai collection to trees that are only native to france !!! Rolling Eyes

Thank you for the compliment, but I also have trees that are not native but can grow here without a whole paraphenelia of artificial lights, heating, etc. like Japanese maples, J. Black pines, Zelkova and many more.

In the Mediterranean part of the country, some have great olive trees because they grow naturally there. In the rest of France, you wouldn't see a decent olive tree, except one bought from southern France, Italy or Spain and that need only maintening, not styling.

In the mountains (the Alps, Massif Central, the Pyreneans), people don't grow olive trees because there are so many local (or "acclimated") species that they won't bother trying to grow a tree that will always look sicly even with the best of care.

It's like trying to grow bananas or pineapple in my garden. I have cherries, peaches, apples, and among "acclimated" species zucchini, tomatoes, beans and other vegetables.

When you see someone taking the wrong path, it's friendy advice to tell them they're taking a dead end road.

taking your advice, you are heading down a dead-end road with that advice...
growing an olive in sweden is not a dead end road. Rolling Eyes
