Answer: BONSAI OLIVO
taking care of bonsai is a real art, which requires a good dose of time and dedication from those who approach it; in the library you can find a large number of manuals on the subject, I suggest you start looking for one on pruning and one on repotting; because to maintain the bonsai such it is necessary to practice a series of precise and specific treatments. If in the meantime you want some practical advice, consider that your olive tree is in a small pot, so in winter keep it in a sunny and sheltered place, outdoors, and if in the area where you live it should freeze cover the pot with some non-woven fabric, to prevent it from freezing. The soil should always be kept a little damp, because your bonsai is evergreen, and will not love that all the earth around its roots becomes completely dry.
