I strongly suggest you plant this tree in a 25 or 50 gallon pot in organic soil for the first 50 years and water with rain water once every 2 or 3 weeks. This tree will live for a very long time. In a pot, you can take it with whenever you move. This is a compact tree. With proper pruning it grows to a 8 foot round ball and holds that shape for a lot of years. 100 year old olive trees are worth $10,000.
