As of lately, olive farming is getting more and more popular in Indonesia and other countries due to its various benefits. Olive seeds are quite expensive, around 200,000 – 250,000 IDR per tree. You can buy you seeds online or directly through your local shops.
I’ve personally seen an olive garden and it was quite an interesting and tempting experience. Here’s how you can start your olive garden correctly:
The first thing to do would be to get your planting medium ready. The recommended planting medium is a mix of husk charcoal, soil, and manure with 1 to 1 to 1 ratio.
After that, ready your seeds and your pot. As another option, you can directly plant them on the ground on your front yard or olive garden. If you want to plant your olive seeds directly on the ground, dig the ground and replace the soil with the previously prepared planting medium to make sure all the nutrients needed present.
The care of olive trees is quite easy; you just need to water them once a day in the late afternoon. Olive trees can withstand a lot of heat and uncertain extreme weather.
After 30 days, you need to add more fertilizer (NPK and/or manure is recommended) in order to replace the used nutrients in your planting medium. After that, fertilization happens every 3 – 6 month.
I hope this information is useful for you. Good luck.
