Specific Directions for Fragrant Tea Olive
Your Fragrant Tea Olive will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. For a hedge place your Fragrant Tea olives about 4 feet apart and their foliage will fill in.
Fragrant Tea Olives prefer slightly acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sand or heavy in clay. If your soil is extra sandy mix in some potting soil prior to planting. Let your soil dry to the touch about three inches down in between waterings.
Every Spring fertilize your Fragrant Tea Olive with a well balanced fertilizer. We recommend Formula 10-10-10 or 16-4-8. Fragrant Tea Olives bloom multiple times a year around. Their blooms might be small but their fragrance is huge!
|Step 1 - Dig Your Hole
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fragrant Tea Olive.
|Step 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Fragrant Tea Olive gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
