How To Care

Spring and fall are ideal times to plant your Fragrant Tea Olive. The Tea Olive grows in zones 7 to 10, but can be patio grown or grown indoors in other zones with appropriate care and conditions.

Fragrant Tea Olives prefer full to part sun. These shrubs are adaptable to any soil as long as it is well-drained soil. Water your new plant deeply about twice a week throughout the establishment period. After establishment, Tea Olives are extremely drought tolerant and low maintenance. In the first year, if the weather is extremely dry and hot, water your plant deeply about once weekly. If needed, fertilize with a slow release fertilizer once yearly in early fall. There is no need to prune this shrub unless you want to limit size or shape. If pruning is desired, prune in late winter or early spring. Tea Olives bloom on new growth so keep that in mind when planning your pruning.

Fragrant Tea Olives are disease and pest resistant and tend to only encounter problems when stressed. So, planting in the correct conditions and providing appropriate care are the best ways to keep these plants healthy. Scale is one of the few potential insects that can affect Tea Olives. This can be treated with horticultural oil. Diseases are easily avoided by ensuring your soil is well drained and never saturated.

I love that the packaging of the trees was packed in such a manner to protect the trees I ordered. I will order from them again because I loved the care and the flawless experience!

This is one of two plants that I ordered. Both arrived well packed with moist soil. Although this plant arrived with one broken and browned stem, I am pleased with the purchase and how well it survived the transport. It has been in the ground one week and is doing well despite the SoCal heat.

The plants were received on time. I planted them next day. The leaves have already scorched from the sun. What should I do so they won't die? I put a cardboard box over them this morning with air holes to try to further protect them

These two 3 Gallon Fragrant Tea Olive came beautifully packed and with moist soil -- they were HUGE almost three feet tall -- with full and bushy leaves - even though I didn't pay for the transit. -- they are in the ground here now in Zone 7 -- I ordered them in December in North Carolina -- they are doing very well and we will definitely be back for more plants and perhaps a few more of these :) Thank you!!
