Olive Crazy: All About Olives and Olive Oil
Jan 132012
 

Here is a video of south Georgia commercial olive grower, Kevin Shaw, showing home gardeners how to plant an olive tree. The items he recommends to have on hand are a Georgia Olive Farms olive tree, time release fertilizer, lime, stake, tape (plastic, non-sticky type), shovel, and water.

In my recent article Olive Crazy Goes to Southeastern Fruit and Vegetable Conference, I mentioned that Kevin Shaw was one of the presenters at the Olive Educational Session. His presentation was chock full of great information for the commercial olive grower. A word of caution, if you want to be a commercial olive grower in the southeastern United States, don’t rely on this video to give you the basics for beginning a commercial enterprise – email Kevin at kevin@georgiaolivefarms.com.

No, I don’t work for or make any money from Georgia Olive Farms or any of their related or subsidiary organizations.

May the sun shine through your branches.
