Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
The English Oak is an iconic sight across the landscape of Britain. Instantly recognisable for its distinctive lobed foliage, deeply furrowed bark, and of course, its acorns. Quercus robur is an important wildlife tree in the UK, supporting hundreds of insect and lichen species, as well as providing food and shelter for a multitude of birds and mammals. Often known as the Pedunculate Oak, this well loved tree will need plenty of space to reach its full potential, forming a majestic, spreading tree after many years. A worthy and noble specimen tree that is best planted as a legacy for future generations to enjoy. Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’).

Height Up to 1200cm (472in)
Spread Up to 800cm (315in)

Plant Oak into any moist, but well-drained soil in full sun or dappled shade. Can be grown as hedging, or as a stand-alone tree, but plant out with an awareness of the final size of the tree.
Oak trees require very little maintenance. Water young plants during particularly dry periods until fully established.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
