I have 2 Olive trees.Last year they began to sprout from the bottom of their trunks. Now they are sprouting from several new places along the entire trunk. Should I leave them like this? Willit effect their growth?
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
Especially olives, because they are charmingly irregular and let so much light through.
Here's my littler of the two, in its pot. It's about 5 years old. I never do anything to it except for feeding in Spring and picking off any brown leaves (and disposing of, in case of fungus- they grow back very fast too).
They're very easy going trees and surprisingly tough considering where they come from.
I would never be without my olives 💚
Mine flower and bear fruit. They're very pretty when left to do their own thing.
