This is for a pack of fantastic quality Sessile Oak Plants (Quercus Petraea)

Sessile oak, also known as the Cornish oak or Durmast oak, is a species of oak tree native to the UK, and has been designated as the national tree of Wales.

The sessile oak is a large deciduous tree up to which can grow 20–40m (66–130ft) tall. The leaves are 7–14 cm (2.8–5.5″) long and 4–8cm broad – evenly lobed with five to six lobes on each side. The flowers are catkins which are produced in the spring. The fruit is an acorn 2–3cm long and 1–2cm broad which matures in about six months.

The plants do not require particularly good soil and will quickly make a dense hedge which is easy to maintain from 3ft upwards. Each plant will grow approximately 25cm each year given average conditions and can be planted in full or partial shade.

Like all bare root plants, Sessile Oak can only be supplied during the dormant planting season which runs from the end of October to the end of March but may be ordered at any time of year to ensure your supply as we may run short of some plants if demand outstrips supply.

 

Customers in rural areas may wish to protect their plants from rabbits. Please see our section on rabbit guards.

 

We highly recommend planting with Rootgrow Mycorrhizal gel to ensure that your plants have the best start in life. Rootgrow helps establish a good root system so that your plants are able to absorb all the water and nutrients they need.

 

We will send you our FREE guide to hedge planting with your order confirmation or this can also be downloaded from our home page.

 

How to plant:

 

We recommend that you plant in a single or staggered row at the rate of 5 per metre so just order the number of packs you need for the hedge length you are after!

Many apologies but due to a change in plant health law following Brexit, we are currently unable to ship to Northern Ireland. We are working on this and hope to find a solution soon!
