Rustic olive tree


Question: How many degrees below zero can the olive tree withstand?


I have a curiosity to satisfy. How many degrees below zero can an olive tree resist? Is it true that in Switzerland they started cultivating this type of plant? If it resists in a predominantly mountainous country and with rather harsh temperatures, it means that as a plant it is quite resistant. Hello to the whole forum of this very complete site! :-))))))))

Rustic olive tree: Answer: How many degrees below zero can the olive tree withstand?


Dear Marco,
the olive is a plant that grows well in areas with a temperate-warm climate, but can resist, contrary to popular belief, even at very low temperatures. So it's no wonder that it is also grown in Switzerland. In any case, if planted in the mountains, it will always be preferable to place it in a sunny and sheltered position (eg from a wall or building).
