Wild olive available

I have just transplanted this olive which I have had for quite some time now.

I love olives but sadly they don't do very well in my climate. The biggest problem is the overwintering. Since it gets too cold for them to leave them outside I take them into my winter shelter where there is not much light. Because of this lack of light they loose a lot of leaves which takes them much longer to recover in spring/summer.

This is the reason why I transplanted this one into this slightly larger pot - to give it a bit more space for it to recover a bit easily in spring. There were plenty of roots though.

And just because I can't guarantee the right conditions for it, this tree is awailable for offers (cheap) to someone who can offer it a better life :)

The 5th photo is from when this tree looked best under my care.

I live in San Francisco, how much would this tree cost and is it available for shipping overseas?

Hi Kevin. I don't ship trees, sorry. Only personal giveaway.
To be honest I don't know if it's possible to import trees into the US. I'm sure it's very difficult if not impossible to bring them here to EU from the US.
