Q: Last year we moved our olive tree by about a metre as we had landscaped our garden. We moved it around last April, the weather did get cold over this period. The leaves fell off and nothing has grown back since. If you scrape the bark it is still green underneath. I was going to cut it back once the risk of frost has passed. Is there anything else that you would recommend to bring the tree back to health or will it just die?
A: If its green underneath it still has a chance of living. I therefore suggest that you leave in it situ and do not cut it back anymore.
