    A majestic tree with dark green, irregular, rounded-lobed leaves and clusters of neat acorns sitting in nobbly cups. Oaks are steeped in history, hiding legendary figures, such as Robin Hood and King Charles II in their sizeable trunks. Known for their large size and longevity, they should be planted for prosperity. They tolerate most soils, except shallow soil, and in large gardens and parks are ideal as specimen trees.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole.
  • Pets: Harmful if eaten
