Grow A Tree in a bag – Wild Olive Tree Seeds

ZAR 39.95

This pack includes seeds of the South African, indigenous Wild Olive tree. Together with instructions, handmade hessian bag, and soil. The Wild Olive tree is and will be the tree of the year for 1988 and 2026. This tree has many biblical references. Therefore, Grow Group gave this tree a poem in honour:

The Spirit tree

Spin around, then look ahead

Feel the rush to your head

That’s the energy in your body

Do something as a hobby

Life fills your every minute

This energy fuels your spirit

This tree seed starter pack is a fun and interactive activity. It has all the basics to get you to grow your own tree from a seed. The big idea is that you grow the tree in the starter pack for 9 months. Once grown, plant your baby tree in an area that you will be able to go back to in 20 years, to give it a hug and say hello. We have the million-tree campaign, whereby we can take the GPS co-ordinates, of where you plant your tree. So that we can map out all the trees that have been planted and grown from seed.


Olea europaea L. subsp. africana

Frost-, drought- and wind-resistant, the Wild Olive is regarded as a small-fruited subspecies of the commercial olive.
