Q.Healthy Olive Tree?
We have two potted olive trees that we purchased a few years ago because they were advertised as being “hardy” and that we wouldn’t have to do anything for the wet Seattle winters. It’s always looked a bit sgraggly and sparse and the branches seem thin. I’m curious if it is healthy or if this is how it’s “supposed” to look.

They look like they are struggling. Even if they are hardy, keeping them in containers lowers their winter hardiness. I would bring them inside for the winter or plant them in the ground. Here are more care tips:
