Send someone special their very own "Plant of Peace". This small Olive Bush Gift will mark any special occasion and makes a great gift for those who don't have a lot of space.

The Olive Tree is thought to be the oldest tree in the world and is sacred to many religions and cultures. For many, it is a symbol of peace and hope which is where the old idea of "offering an Olive branch" (making peace) comes from.

Olives have always been a staple of the Mediterranean diet and in recent years this has spilt over to the UK. They are great for cooking, serving as part of Tapas or even for snacking on. The oil from the Olive is excellent for cooking with and makes a great base for salad dressings. It is also rich in antioxidants and is one of the good fats.
