I repotted this olive last week. I bought it at a landscape nursery in 2008. The lower left branch in the most current photo will be pruned greatly but I'm trying to add some thickness to it first.

Nice work so far Barry, good base on that guy. Looks like it's filling out fast.

Makes me wonder if you should expose a bit of the lower portion again... It is interesting to see the branching exposed in this earlier shot. But if so, I think I'd induce some more bends in the long swooping lowest branches. Are you planning on growing this up at all? (height wise) Just wondering where your design idea is going...
