Re-potted my olive tree and it's drooping

I've just re-potted my olive tree and it's gone all droopy on the tips is it going to die? 


  • It came from a much smaller pot and I gave it a generous water, after doing some searching on Google I think it's just the shock of being transferred and over watering, all the older parts of the tree are doing fine it's just the new shoots that have drooped.

    They are probably suffering a bit in the sun. Make sure the soil is free draining. A loam-base soil with some grit added to help with drainage. Keep the pot well watered and store it somewhere semi shaded for a few days for it to perk up. It looks like a very young/small shrub, so may not have a big root system, therefore still quite sensitive to any disturbance.
