A long lived slow growing Olive with attractive silver-grey foliage and a gnarled grey trunk with age. ‘Tolleys Upright’ is a low fruit bearing, compact growing tree with symmetrical branching making it ideal for hedging, topiary,and containers.


Olives require a full sun position and are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions including poor and rocky soils. Whilst drought tolerant to ensure maximum fruit yield it is important to water well during flower and fruit production especially if growing in containers. Fertilise in autumn and spring.
