Has anyone bought an old olive tree in a pot? They now seem to be so popular and a recent trend. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand they are very sculptural and interesting to my eye.....but will they survive in these conditions in the UK? I have seen them for sale at upwards of £500 (or even several thousand pounds). Sometimes the pot they are in is barely larger than the trunk size. Some must be hundreds of years old. Do they have enough roots to continue to survive in a large pot? What about watering? They must have been dug up from somewhere in Spain or Italy or elsewhere in the Mediterranean olive regions. What do people think?
