So, I got this small potted olive tree for Christmas. Soon after it lost all its leaves. I assumed it had died, but a couple months ago, some leaves appeared again. Since, I began to water it again (not too much, since I assume I shouldn’t), I put it outside, and replanted in in a bigger pot. However, the handful of new leaves died out, and since no new ones appeared. The baby tree seems completely dead.
However, I would want to be really sure it is before giving up and throwing it away. How can I know?
