Hi l have the same issue the olive tree in my garden has a lot of leaves turning yellow. l'm not watering it very often there a lot of olives forming .
The soil its in is clay, but l have also when l planted it out of its container followed the instructions to add John Innes no 3 this was 3 years ago.




You don't say what part of the UK, but most of us have had no rain at all for weeks, so I'm guessing your tree is suffering a bit of drought...

I agree with Bamboo this is very likely due to lack of rain and it is in a clay soil despite the add JI no 3.

work a fork into the soil around the stem to open it up and give it plenty of water.

welcome to GoY too :o)

But if it needs water it needs it. Has it had any feed since you planted it? if not give it a general all purpose feed.
