Young olive branches shrivelled

grecogreco Posts: 1
Hello, can anybody help me? I have 2 olive trees about 3 years old. I have replanted them a month ago and they Already started to grow young healthy branches with flowers. Pots are drained and I used bone fertiliser to top the soil as well. Yesterday I realised that these young branches look tired and shrivelled. It was a cold night on Sunday but not below 0. Do you think it is a reaction on temperature and cold wind, or over watering? Will they revive eventually?

    I think that is a result of cold temperatures, and possibly too much water. Olives are Mediterranean plants and do not like to be too wet, especially in cold weather.
