Pruning An Olive Tree

IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE SOME PLANTS NEED TO BE PRUNED AFTER THEY BLOOM. If you wait too long, sometime later in the summer, you could be pruning off next years buds.

Remove all the new growth, let it grow again during the summer and let it put out some more growth, continue training it, so next spring, it will have a beautiful plush of blooms.
