old olive

This wild olive was collected in Mallorca, Spain in 1997. I got it a few years ago and it was very weak. It did not really grow since. this year I fed with organic fertilizer and it started to grow finally. but it is still a long way to go. The deadwood is bizarre and fantastic. I will certainly leave the natural dark brown color. This will never be painted with lime sulphur!
