Once a year, preferably in early spring (starting from March) we fertilize our olives and our other Mediterranean trees and plants. We have special fertilizer tablets
. They are called Healthy Start tablets they contain organic fertilizer. These tablets provide a uniform and optimal fertilization. The tablets are pressed around the stem in the soil and dissolve in approximately 3 - 4 months, during the growing you can use either more tablets or you can use the nutrion package
. In the winter we protect our Mediterranean trees with special protective covers that are easy by means of a zipper and tensioning straps to apply. They are breathable covers that prevent the olive from extreme cold (east wind). The combination of covers and heating tape is the best protection.
