    Olive trees

    Just about anything I grow in my indoor window boxes takes, no mattter how tropical the plant.

    Have always have trouble growing olive trees, though. Not even a sprout. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried growing a saguaro cactus? That would be a challenge for you


    Did you know out here in AZ it is against the law to destroy one. A protected species

    Ken,

    I would understand those. I love them. Once wrote a tanka about them

    -Dozer- Fair enough. Bushes, then.
    Pingo - I think it's me who has to extend the olive branch, after using the bad word in here a couple of weeks ago that some found offensive. So, I apologize for that. I was being silly.

    Reindeer, it was just a "pun"- I agree, you have always been nice to me, and I thank you for that. However, some of your wording was not for the public. You admit this - all forgiven - at least from me.
    Most Happy Holidays to you and your family and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year - Pingo

    Hey RG - sorry you're having difficulty with your olive tree - Are you trying to grow them inside? Olive trees are my favourite tree, but I think they only grow outdoors - if you live in NE it might be too humid and cold for it.

    I hear that it is hard to do. Also, pit must be from fresh, untreated olive, and seeds do not grow trees identical to their forebears (like apples.) See this link for discussion:

    Ken - as a fellow Arizonian, I have to say that I would trade out my saguaro for an olive tree any day were it legal. Wish I could give someone my Peruvian Torch for that matter. It is getting huge and out of control over a walkway.

    Hi Ken,
    My curiosity got the best of me. Here is your Peruvian Torch (I don't think I want it) - Pingo

    I don't want it either. Now that I've seen it we have plenty of those out her. In the part of Phoenix I live in, Ahwatukee, the sides of all the streets are landscapeed with trees, bushes, flowers, cacti, you name it. It makes it kind of pretty though. But we have to pay an HOA to have them keep it up.

    Thank you for your enlightening reply, Leasyll. Yes, inside. ~sigh~

    Your answer helped me much to figuring this out. Thanks again.

    Hats,

    I thank you for kindly for the link. For the olives, but also because I am always looking for new gardening sites to add to my bookmarked pages.

    Are saguaro a protected species, Circles?

    Ken - I love the color of the Peruvian Torch. So pretty.
