Sweet tea olive

My daughter wants to set out a number of Sweet tea olives. What time of the year is best to set them out? We pretty much have everything else figured out.

Thanks in advance,
Randall H.

Anne's response:

I prefer to plant in October. The soil is still warm enough for roots to put on new growth and you can keep the soil moist enough for good root development. The plants are then ready to get a dose of fertilizer in the spring and start growing.
