Hi.

Two of my olives are loosing the inner leaves.

The big one lost some of the top leaves because of frost damage. But now the both are loosing the inner leaves.

They were both repotted a month ago. They both had a taproot wich I removed and I also reduced the fooliage a bit.

The last week we had a lot of rain and they suddenly lost a lot of the inner fooliage.

Will they survive, anything I can do?
I don't know whether they are loosing leaves because of all the rain or because I reduced the roots hard back.

Olives are to be repotted during their active growing season. Typically summer. They tend to not skip a beat when done at that time.

Was it after that you seen the decline? Because I'm pretty certain you repotted outside the window for repotting.

There we go. Not sure how I posted this as a message to your profile. So edit and moved where intended.

You are probably right. Yes it was about one month after repotting I saw the decline.
