The olive is one of the most beloved and sacred trees which symbolises peace and friendship.
The olive branch is usually a symbol of peace, harmony and hope. The dove and olive branch is used as a symbol of peace, further to the Christian belief of the story of Noah and the Flood (with a passage that describes a dove returning to the ark with an olive leaf, a sign of life after the floods).
Olive Bonsai (Olea Europaea)
The Olive makes a superb bonsai which can be grown either indoors or outdoors during warmer months. A fabulous evergreen variety which sports beautiful silvery green smooth-edged leaves. A Mediterranean tree with strong symbolic significance and renowned for being able to survive in dry conditions with poor soil and little nutrition.
A great variety for beginners due to its ease of care. The flowers are particularly spectacular and are followed by fruits on more mature specimens. Please protect olive bonsai from hard frosts during winter months. They prefer a bright position and the soil should be kept damp and not too wet. We feed our olive bonsai weekly for extra vigour and blooming.
