Olive tree bonsai, from the Caucasus to the Mediterranean a thousand-year wonder

The olive bonsai, a great classic among bonsai all over the world, is probably native to Asia Minor and Syria: the olive trees constitute here real forests that extend for several kilometers on the coasts. It then spread throughout the Greek and Roman period throughout the Mediterranean basin, becoming among the most common and characteristic species of the Italian territory (particularly in the South). The Olea sylvestris variety, also called "olivastro", grows wild on rocky areas and has thorny branches, small leaves and shrub bearing. It seems that the wild olive tree is the forerunner of what we now know as European Olea, which has assumed the appearance of a tree following human intervention through cultivation.
A bonsai olive tree requires a very bright position: being an outdoor variety it can be kept in full sun, which gives vigor to the leaves and facilitates flowering, but taking care to protect it from high temperatures during the summer (you can make nebulizations on the crown) and from the winter frosts. Requires a drained soil, with continuous watering essential whenever the soil is dry, but avoiding stagnation. It is preferable to irrigate it even in winter, obviously at wider intervals than in summer, perhaps in the morning allowing the soil to expel excess water at night.
An olive bonsai should be fertilized once a month only during the vegetative period, then from spring to late summer, with a specific slow-release fertilizer for bonsai. It is advisable to repot it every 3-4 years and prune it after the vegetative phase: with these precautions you will maintain the millennial charm of this plant, which is now a real reference point for any enthusiast.
