That goes both ways too—for every New Yorker wanting a Meyer lemon tree we have a Southern Californian longing to grow Bartlett pears. Tricia plants an olive tree in our latest video and that probably has you fired up about the beautiful and long-lived trees, with their crop of health-giving fruit. Here’s how…

You can see it all now—it’s a sunny day and you’re sitting at a wooden table in your olive grove, eating olives and crusty bread, and drinking wine with your friends and family. You grew and cured those olives yourself. The question is—WHICH olives? Which olive trees will get prized positions in your olive grove?

You make look so easy, nice job.  Can I grow olive trees in western New York?  Springville NY, 22 miles south of Buffalo?  Do you sell the bare root stock and when is the best time to buy and plant fruit trees here?  Thank you, awesome web site

Mike, Sorry about the olives, but you are in USDA zone 5a and that’s just too cold for them. Lots of bare root fruit trees would do fine with you though! Buy bare root fruit trees now and “heel them in” until the ground is no longer frozen. Check the side bar in Fruit Trees to sort for trees that thrive in zone 5 http://www.groworganic.com/seasonal-items/fruit-trees.html and see all our fruit tree info in one place at Fruit Tree Central http://groworganic.com/organic-gardening/articles/fruit-trees Happy to hear you like our site!
