Can a tea olive be planted in a container on deck in full sun? If so how deep should soil be in planter? I can build a taller planter box if need.

Generally, the container will increase, slightly, in size with the shrub as it grows. I would plant them into a container that is a few inches larger on each side each time it outgrows the one that it is in. Once it gets close to a 10 gallon container in size, you can plant them into a container of about 15 to 20 gallons per shrub. I would opt for a depth of at least 12 inches or so for these full sun shrubs.
