Ok, no idea if this is national but it has to be worth checking your local store for this. Tonight I got 2x Olive Trees between 5-6ft tall half price (were £20 - NOTE THESE ARE NOT THE ONES THAT WERE 2 FOR £20, THEY ARE TWICE THE SIZE!). Fantastic price AND I managed to get them home all on my own in my VW Beetle along with my son and a boot full of groceries (takes a bit of female logic lol).

My local store is Tesco Ystradgynlais (South Wales, Swansea Valley) so if you are anywhere near i'd say they had around 20-30 trees left. And as I say, well worth checking your local store to see if they have them OR ask the friendly people on their Facebook page to check for you!

HTH some of you anyway, i'm really pleased with my purchase :)

p.s. they were being announced as reduced while I was instore, so I think this reduction has only just taken place today.

I saw these in Tesco yesterday. Do you know if they can produce fruit or are they just ornamental?

You are thinking of the ones that were less than half the size, they were £15 each or 2 for £20!

You will have a VERY hard job getting fruit from these in this country. They need much warmer weather, but give it a try, you never know. :)

How many of these would I have to plant in my back garden before I would qualify for an EU agricultural subsidy? Anyone?

Thanks. I am growing my own fruit and veg, but might not take the risk.

Still £20 each in the Alfreton store. :(

Not a bad price (very similar in Homebase this weekend with the 15% off) but like others have said... so hard to fruit in the UK.

It's not hard to keep alive, just hard to get any olives. And don't forget, an olive straight off a tree tastes like absolute ****.

If you're keen on growing your own then I'd suggest something a bit more British - Pears, Apples, etc? I think they're British.

I'm currently growing chilli plants. Very good fun!

AFAIK New, new Beetle (only just on sale - the one you're talking about went end of life about 2 years ago) has no plant holder.

LOL!

Mine is the 'New' Beetle (Mk1 - original of the new ones) I'm not really sure where the flower thing came from but I think it links back to the original Beetles, there seemed to be a whole 'flower power' thing going on with them. When I bought mine the vase was empty, so I bought some lovely big red flowers (to match the paintwork) to put in it and everyone comments on how lovely they are. I <3 my Beetle :)

I think they have done away with the flower vase in the newest ones as they appear to be going for the more masculine look - i'm not so fussed on the new shape.

Sounds like you may have over watered it. They don't need much water.

Probably ridiculous questions but:
1) Can these be kept indoors or are they outdoor plants only?
2) If outdoor only, can they be kept in the pot or should they be planted?

Thanks, I'm not a gardening type but love the look of olive trees :)

Olive trees look lovely but in the UK the weather isn't really suitable for them. I don't expect they would survive a hard frost. They would do much better in a conservatory if you have one!

There is currently a surplus of olive oil in the EU

The question you ought to be asking is 'How much will the EU give me for agreeing not to plant olive trees?'

and 'Will I get more money if I agree not to plant more trees?'

How many do I have to buy so that I can use my hosepipe on the grounds I am an olive farmer?
