  • Oak - English

    Quercus Robur

    From £2.39

    The classic English Oak provides rich autumn colour when its dark green foliage turns burnt orange and begins to fall to the ground.

    Quercus Robur Trees are also a food source and natural habitat to many species of British wildlife. English Oaks have a spreading form and would be expected to reach a height and spread of 10x6m over 20 years.

    English Oak Trees will grow well in all but the wettest of soils. Oaks also attract a whole host of wildlife, thanks partly to the acorns which they begin producing after 40 years of growth. \n\nThese trees can eventually reach up to 40 metres in height, but this can take between 20 and 50 years to achieve.

    English Oak are great for hedging as they produce tap roots early in life, which means they do not steal moisture and nutrients from the surrounding plants.

    1. Select Root Type

    Bare Root 

    Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

    Root Ball 

    Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

    Pot Grown 

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

    Instant Hedging 

    Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
