No not in the pot. Come in a plastic terracotta colour pot.

I saw that they had beautiful Acers about 2 1/2 feet tall for £8 both versions the red and green. Heat

I assume you have a fascination with Olive from On The Buses.
Same price in Asda if it's more convenient.
If you buy this tree, does it mean you never need to buy cooking oil ever again?
Bought 10. Constantly having to hold out the branches from it to Mrs D.......
no idea about this but don't they need heat to grow....(Heat added though)

For those posting questions because they cant type "olive trees uk" into Google:

So, in colder areas of the country, you can grow olives in large (60cm, 24ins) diameter and depth) containers. Plant in a well-drained mix of compost, such as loam-based John Innes No 3 with 20 percent by volume added horticultural grit. You can place containers outdoors in summer and then move into a cold conservatory, porch or greenhouse over winter.Although they can cope with dry periods, olives in containers need regular watering and feeding to produce fruit. During the growing season keep the compost moist and feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser such as Phostrogen, every month. In winter, you can reduce watering, but don’t let the compost dry out completely.

I live just outside Manchester and have two olive trees I got a couple of years ago when Ikea were clearing them out. Have so far survived two winters outside in pots in a sheltered location out of the prevailing wind (and rain, what with it being Manchester). I've got a greenhouse I can move them into but was told, for those that don't, when it gets really cold you can wrap some horticultural fleece, bubble wrap or similar loosely around the top till it warms up a bit again.

olea europea is only safe down to minus 10 or so. Will you get the odd olive? maybe in a good year but in the uk its really just an ornamental.
So would these be okay indoors all year round? And how much is one at Morrison's?

You don't cook with olive oil
I have several olive trees down here in sunny Gosport (Portsmouth area) and they have survived - and in fact, thrived for 3-4 years in the ground in the garden. Having started off as 1.4m+pot when I first bought them they are now over 7ft tall!
They'll certainly be fine outdoors/in ground in milder parts of the UK.

What? Almost every Mediterranean dish is cooked with olive oil - just don't fry to extreme temperatures with it like frying.

Why would you say that? I have always cooked with olive oil. It is healthier and tastier that vegetable, sunflower or rapeseed oil. I have a light olive oil for frying an egg or omelette or whatever. And the heavier more premium olive oil gets used for making roast potatoes.

I thought olive oil isn't good to cook at high temperatures, rapeseed etc would be better for frying an egg etc no?

While olive oil is healthier when used as a dressing in it's natural state. When heated it becomes carcinogenic. So should never be used for frying as it has a very low smoking point.
None in the Morrison's in Edinburgh (Gyle Centre)
Cardiff, Newport Road is selling the larger ones at two for £30. They had about 8 left when I was just there (at the front of the store, before you go up the travelator.

I'm no scientist but that sounds like utter nonsense.

And I am no government or health and safety statistician, but I am pretty sure the records are 0 deaths due to frying food with olive oil.
