I have it in all areas. The deer here will munch on it. I also need to feed it more. Did that yesterday and mulched it well. It will root from cuttings so you can try it in other areas once you get it started. Good luck. Margie, aka Queen of Dirtland
Sweet Olive needs to be out of our hot Texas afternoon sun. . . at least from 2pm on. I think they perform and look better. I did have one in all day sun and with regular watering, the sun and heat took it's toll on it. I have a sister that lives in Bastrop, so I know your temps get as hot as mine.
Well alrighty then...the little darlings are staying in pots until we can decide what to do with them for sure. Probably end up placing them under the post oaks out back close to the 'casa del gato'. It took nearly 50 yrs before I finally got my 1st real playhouse. Actually, alittle further back and they would be at the edge of the PO's and catch all the morning sun. Course I'll need the binoculars to see them from the house. Sorry, just rambling ...& having a wee glass of wine.
Enjoy the weekend and thanks for all of your help.
A wee glass of wIne and some rambling sounds just about the right thing for tonight... maybe even the weekend.
Two years ago, when I had nothing but dirt in my back yard and no money to do anything with it (I had just cut down all the pine trees- they kept falling or threatening to fall on my house), everything I had was in pots. The only good thing about that year was that I could keep moving everything around until I figured out the best locations for them
My sweet olives are planted under oak trees and receive a lot less light than they did when they were first planted. They used to receive morning sun and afternoon filtered shade. They have been blooming for at least a month which is quite early for them to do so.
