    C58FB477-297A-4422-A13B-E0ED4395FDE8.jpeg Last summer we bought a standard olive tree, it’s been outside all winter although I did bring it in when it was really cold. But it’s starting to look ill with dark patches on the leaves, many of which are turning yellow. I don’t want to lose it so would really appreciate help, please

    I see you have done a bit of pruning.
    Is it showing signs of new growth buds?

    Perfectly normal :)

    It's the time of year evergreen deciduous trees shed their leaves.

    Boris the Olive has been out all winter and is doing the same thing :spinning:
