Olive Tree Problem

Any Tree Lovers About ? I've problems with two Olive trees and I'd appreciate some advice.
The trees I bought as mature type trees a little over three tears ago at the present moment they are about 3 to 4 meters tall. The tree does seem rather distressed, it's dropping an awful lot of leaves. The trees live in two ceramic pots roughly 48x48 cm
I'm thinking that there are a few possibilities
The tree needs a good feed. Would you recommend any in particular?
It's possible they're waterlogged. I'm right on top of a hill and while there is plenty of protection there it has been pretty wet here. On top of my hill the wind is very cutting
However, I'm inclined to think the most probable cause would be: they're in to small of a pot.
Last year I had the same experience and I have to think is it just dropping its leaves naturally but surely it's to late in the season for that?
If I am going to have to shift from the pot to the ground will I have to wait until autumn?
Please see the photos I've attached
I would say they're gasping for air!! A bit too many green leaves on the ground for a healthy normal leaf fall. They would be better in the ground - or a big huge tub!
Olive trees are hardy and withstand extreme temperatures.
Mine has leaf scab but I can't see any on your leaves? Good advice from above.
