Mt 3 metre olive bush which I grew from a pot and transfered to the garden 4 years ago was cut down to 1 metre by my gardener. It looks dead. It was a deep healthy green with hundreds if olives. Will this ever revive? Is there anything I can do to save it?
I'd guess it probably will re-sprout but will take a few years to re-grow to its former glory.
I have one on the patio and every now and then I chop a couple of feet off to stop it hitting the awning when it's out. Within a few weeks there are lots of new shoots appearing.
I've found seaweed extract once a month during the growing season to be a really good fertilizer for them.
Time for a new gardener?
