We have 2 olive trees about 4 years old they have only a few fruits on this year for the first time. They appear healthy and are about 3 meters tall, well drained soil, good area for sun both winter and summer. We live in Northland so less than 1-2 frosts if any a year. What can we do to “help ” them along and get some fruit!!

It sounds like you planted them in the correct site ie sunny, fairly frost-free and well-drained. Olives ideally require long, hot summers with a cooler winter. You do not mention if they are self-fertile varieties. Ideally more than one variety of Olive should be planted to sure good pollination. Remove dead, diseased and damaged growth, and thin out inner branches to allow sufficient light into the centre of the tree. Hope this helps.
