Default transplanting olive tree

We are growing an olive tree (2 years old) in a pot (in Sydney) but we need
to move it to a larger pot.
Does anyone know when the best time to transplant would be? We would like to
do it as soon as we can as it is part of a garden makeover but I suspect the
hot Sydney summer may not be the best time.
Thanks for any advice
Ted

Give it a good watering before transplanting (say a day or 2 before).

If the tree is in good condition, there is no reason why it cannot be
transplanted now. As long as you give it a good water after potting up. Just
don't over water.
IF you want to wait, leave it until around August, end of Winter, and do it
then.

Good luck

Default transplanting olive tree

Hi,

I dug up two 2-year trees in September last year and put them into pots.
Both are doing well under a guava tree. I did prune some branches as soon as
I put them in pots. The trees were about 10 feet tall and flowering at that
time.
