What on earth are close Mabinogion plants?? I wanted to write climbing plants And that gibberish came out.
I planted an olive tree from Wilko about 15 years ago.
It was a foot tall at time of purchase, more of a rooted cutting really. 10 feet tall now.
It has produced a few edible olives in the last few years, getting better every year.
I also planted an avocado stone about 20 years ago & one of the fruits of the 20 foot tree has produced a young tree two years old now.

Once established they are, will be ok in a pot in a sheltered spot this winter, then ok to plant. Well ours has done fine in Yorkshire!

Yup, fine if next to your house. You can always insulate the soil.
If this is whitefield in Manchester that you're referring to then this is not right. The garden centre has closed now until they stock the Christmas trees. I've just been into store and nothing in there either.

Don’t know where you’re thinking of , Whitefield Morrison’s doesn’t have a garden centre. There were a dozen or so this morning.

The ones I got from Ebay 5 years ago have always been in the garden. I'm no gardener so they've had zero maintenance. I do get a bit of sun in London.
I bought these from morrisons 4 years ago & planted in huge pots in garden... they are doing really well & have grown into real trees

Is your advocado planted outside? i've got a small plant doing well, but thought it wouldn't be hardy in winter

Yes the back garden in London though, so a bit protected from the cold. They do grow into quite a big tree with very dense foliage so think about where to plant it. I made the mistake of planting too close to my neighbour when it was small.
How on earth could that olive tree in the picture grow to 4ft while in such a tiny pot?
Cracking first post - thanks a lot and welcome to HUKD deal posting

That tickled me Nice to see I'm not the only one whose phone regularly decides it knows a more appropriate synonym in Klingon 🙈
That is definitely a HotUKDeals bargain. Good post. I am going to try my local store tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

Without any pruning it would be as wide as it is tall!
As you can see the neighbours half is missing

Wowww....I'm impressed 🙃

Genuine question...would that eventually grow avocados?

Euther way, wish I had some fruit trees...They look like loquats

Lol.
They were quite within their rights and were kind enough to return the prunings, dumping them over the fence on top of my flower bed crushing everything there.

The Yellow fruit must be avocados as the tree was grown from one, maybe they were overripe? I've not tasted one yet.
The original fruit was a green one from a supermarket.
I'm not sure why they're not the same but I know that growing any fruit tree from seed is unpredictable. They usually use cuttings to maintain the characteristics from the mother tree in commercial orchards.

LOL that's no Avocado tree mate. That fruit is called a Loquat. Someone sold you the wrong tree. Nice fruit though, much tastier then Avocados.

I grew it myself from an avocado bought from a supermarket. I didn't buy a tree. Maybe they are similar looking?

I bought mini olive trees from Amazon last year for £20, they survive the winter, I put them in the shed from October to march and they did okay, they where near window so they got light. You can not bring them into heated houses or you mess with the climatisation and the leafs fall off.

Already one one, mate - albeit not in the UK.

Mabinogion plants? Very impressed that your phones Auto Correct is familiar with ancient Welsh literature.

Give the stuff you don't need to charity and stop buying stuff you don't need. Simple as that. Save the planet.
Cheaper than a bottle of Olive oil.

Frost will kill them. Cover with wool and they are fine. I've had some 3 years.
