Re: Got Namwa

I have an idea in my head... It involves a lot of PVC, a few nails, some bungee cords and a few sandbags. It's fully adjustable for any size plant and can hold a bunch if necessary. All I need is...

Looks like the Arbequina & Koroeike olive trees are available to me and cold hardy down to 20° F. These are $60 to $80 /each and should be fruiting age.

Re: If U dont know what to do with yourself ;)

This variety usually takes about 5 years until first fruiting. How many, depends how big small garden is. I personally would not plant any in less of 20m2.
