Jul 04, Shearing of Tea Olive can be performed any time of year, however, to avoid damaging new growth that emerges after pruning, I recommend ceasing pruning two months prior to the average first frost date in your area.
Heavy pruning to reduce the size or to tree form your Tea Olive should be performed in late winter, while the plant is shrubtrim.buzzg: Locust Grove.

Let one of our tree pros work on your trees today! Missing: pruning tea. Trim back branch tips in late winter or early spring to shape the tea olive shrub. Make the pruning cut 1/4 inch above a lower pair of leaves, dormant buds or branch twig junction. Where branch tips encroach on a building facade, fence or other garden plant, trim the branch back farther so regrowth doesn't quickly put the branch right back into the wall or nearby shrubtrim.buzzg: Locust Grove.
Sep 21, Holly tea olive or false holly (Osmanthus heterophyllus) has small, dense foliage that is spiny when young and is recommended as a privacy hedge in USDA zones 7 through 9. Delay pruning false holly hedges until after they flower in the fall if you don't want to lose the fragrant flowers. Cut formal hedges so they are wider at the base than the shrubtrim.buzzg: Locust Grove.
Jul 26, Propagating Tea Olive. It's fairly easy to propagate tea olive. Take a cutting in early winter when growth is slow. Cut a six- to eight-inch stem piece just above a leaf node, where a leaf meets the stem. Remove leaves from the bottom half of the stem.
Dip the cut end in rooting shrubtrim.buzzg: Locust Grove.
