I have a Sweet Olive plant I purchased 6 months ago. It is about 7 inches tall. It had leaves and flowers on it when I bought it, but every few weeks another leaf falls off the stem. They are not yellow or damaged, but remain green and healthy looking. Today the last leaf fell off, although new blossoms are forming on the stem. Will it make new leaves or is it dying?
Persistent watering can often lead to leaf drop like this. You should water only when the topmost portion of soil feels dry to the touch. Also, make sure that it receives at least 4 hours of sunlight, though more wouldn't hurt.

I can't find information on starting sweet olive trees from seeds. There is info on starting from cuttings, but I bought seeds without instructions. Please help because I would really like to start these seeds.
Here is a website that has information on sowing your seed.
