Hardy, slow growing, eventually forming a large round-headed native deciduous tree with acorns on long stems in autumn. Good in hedgerows as it usually produces tap roots in early life, so it does not rob the surrounding plants of moisture and nutrients. Although it produces a broad crown, it does not prevent the hedge from growing well in its shade. Will become home to a copious number of insects and species of wildlife. Very long-lived, up to 200 years. Any ordinary well drained soil, tolerant of clay, produces best quality timber on heavy soil.TREE 15ft x 8ft (4.6m x 2.4m) in 20 years, ultimate height 100ft (30m).

We can only sell bare-rooted plants when they are dormant. Orders for bare-rooted plants will be sent when the plants are dormant again (depending on the weather this is normally in November). We still have a wide range of pot grown and cell grown plants available for despatch or collection.
We don't charge your credit card for goods until they are about to be despatched. Orders received before October will be charged at this season's prices. We process orders on a first come, first served basis so to get your plants as early as possible please place your order now.
