Oak (Hedging)

Quercus robur

Hardy Tree

Oak can very easily be grown as a hedging plant, its robust growth and branching habit will soon form a dense screen of the well known leaves, acorns will form in late summer which are well loved by wildlife and the hedge will also host many insects and other creatures, including nesting birds in spring. Very easy to grow and keep to shape, Quercus robur can also be incorporated into a mixed native hedging scheme. Supplied as 60 - 80 cm bare roots (24 - 31") Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 45cm (18"). (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

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.
Water young plants during particularly dry periods until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the hedge. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. When growing as a hedge, keep oak plants trimmed as required through the summer.
