Journal October 5, 2013 Growing olives in New York
The Arbequina I received a short time ago appears to be struggling a little, with brown leaf tips and some leaf drop. I wrote to Steve at foeverfruitless11 and sent a photo of the tree. Steve replied today that it appears the tree has gone into shock, as that sometimes happens from shipping. He wrote that he will ship a replacement tree, but to hold onto the tree, as it will probably come back strong. Not many sellers on eBay treat buyers like Steve does.
Last, but not least, I have an Arbosana tree on order, as I inadvertently over watered my small tree and it did not come back. Small trees are really not as forgiving when it comes to over watering.
