Quercus ilex, is an evergreen oak that is majestic in nature and only suited to a park or other large area. This beautiful tree is slow growing but very long lived.

 

Botanical name: Quercus ilex

Planting: Sow seeds immediately in pots as they can’t dry out. They may take up to 8 weeks to germinate. When they are big enough to handle plant into a larger pot untill they're big enough to plant out into the ground. This tree is not suited to pot culture but can be used for bonsai.

Care: Needs good soil that is well drained. Water regularly in summer until the tree is well established.

Diseases: I haven’t had any pests or diseases on mine.

Seed Saving: It takes around 25 years for oaks to be mature enough to produce seeds.
