I picked up this little mission olive at the grocery store of all places. It was on sale and had the start of a nice nebari and some lower trunk movement. Since it’s still pencil thin, I plan to put some wire on it this fall, then put it in a colander in the spring and just let it rock out for several years.
I looked it up and the internets say mission olive is the most cold tolerant of the olives so if there’s any olive I could grow up her in the mountains east of Seattle, this would be it.
Anyone have any luck growing mission olive (or any olive) in colder climates? Any tips?
Here’s some pics.
