Why Fragrant Tea Olive Trees?
An unforgettable fragrance merges with slow but steady growth, making the Tea Olive Tree a must-have for your garden. And because the Fragrant Tea Olive grows slowly, its dense evergreen growth can be pruned into a hedge or shrub, providing an effective and decorative screen that's adaptable to your needs.
Plus, its glossy green leaves serve as the perfect backdrop to white blooms that will emerge both late in the fall and early in the spring. And when they do, get ready for the sweet, memorable scent that has made the Tea Olive Tree a favorite amongst landscape designers and gardeners the world over.
Reminiscent of gardenia and jasmine, your Tea Olive will thrill each season as it delivers a unique and memorable fragrance. With a scent so whimsical and wonderful, you'd think the Tea Olive would be a handful when it comes to upkeep.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Before planting your Tea Olive in the ground, moisten the roots and set it in the shade for a few days. When you’re ready to plant, place your Fragrant Tea Olive tree in full sun to partial shade, avoiding deep shade (4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily). Although clay, loam and sandy soil can accommodate your tree, try to choose a location with well-draining, slightly acidic soil.
Dig a hole about as deep as the root ball and about twice as wide. Set the tree in the hole, spreading out the roots over the surface of the hole. Fill the hole in with a mixture of the original soil and any additional topsoil required. Eliminate any air pockets that may have formed by tamping down firmly. Water the area until the top 3 inches of soil becomes moist but not soaked.
2. Watering: Water regularly in the first year after planting. Wait until the top 3 inches of soil dry out before watering again. Soon after the first year, your Tea Olive will become drought tolerant and only need water during extended droughts.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a complete fertilizer in early spring such as 10-10-10, preferably one with slow-release nitrogen and follow the directions on the packaging.

Healthy good growth, small for this size. Next time I'll get a larger size. This will take a while to grow into a nice size tree.
Tea olive trees
I initially purchased 8 of these and they arrived on time, were in great condition, have been planted and are beautiful. I needed two more, so ordered them and they arrived late and were severely dry and damaged. I took pictures while still on n the box and then pulled out and took more pics, called the company and they did some research and then sent two replacements which were beautiful.
Excellent healthy specimen received by mail.
The Sweet Olive was a little smaller than I expected but it's a good strong (small) tree that will adapt to the Houston environment as it grows. It was in bloom when I received it and of course opening the box resulted in a discharge of that heavenly smell. The box packing was incredibly effective at protecting the tree while being shipped. Thanks for your help and efforts in this.
