Today I planted this olive in the Casa Margherita grove. Our grove has a number of gaps probably from when large number of trees died all over Umbria in the cold winters of 1986 and 1997. Where have said that we will gradually fill the gaps that exist in the grove and today was the first one.
I will leave the stake there for a couple of years to let is bed in. The stake is to stop it breaking in the wind and will be put to the test later in the week as we have18mph winds forecast.
