The Holm Oak is ideal for hedging in exposed and coastal areas; plants are exceptionally drought resistant and tolerant of pollution. Plants of Holm Oak are easy to clip and maintain, and can be grown in sun or shade. Height as full-size specimen tree: 25m (80'). Spread: up to 20m (70').

Plant Holm 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. Holm Oak will grow in most positions, including coastal, although avoid cold, inland areas.
Holm Oak will require very little pruning when grown as a specimen tree, although when growing as a hedge, keep plants trimmed as required through the summer.
