How do you feed olive trees and keep them happy

I would like to feed my olive trees to encourage growth. I have 4 planted in a row and only one has grown since planted about 8 months ago. I live in Geelong and I am hoping to get them to show their real beauty. Thank you

Dear Kim,

I would wait till Spring now before feeding your olive trees. We would suggest a well balanced fertiliser such as Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food. It's enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your fruiting plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs. As well feeding your olive trees, this product will also enrich the soil. The best time to apply is early spring and then again in late summer.
