We sell Quercus ilex in containers and rootballs but in this case we prefer containers.
Pleached holm oaks are carefully cultivated as privacyscreens and espaliers at our nursery. Cultivating and monitoring these particular oaks is one of the most important tasks at our nursery. We grow single-stemmed as well as multi-stemmed holm oaks for privacy trees.

We consider growing holm oaks to be one of our nursery's specialties. We are able offer these trees with standard stem heights and deviant stem heights. Our extra high pleached screens are rather unique.
Pleached Quercus ilex is one of the most durable espaliers. It also remains the most evergreen, along with ilex. Even during very dry summers and cold winters, the holm oak will retain its leaves.
The holm oak has deep roots and a small root zone, this ensures that the tree does not cause problems with paving, decking tiles, foundations or pavement.

Fruit
Quercus ilex bears acorn nuts similar to Quercus robur.
Like the English oak, the holm oak is valuable to the environment.
Quercus ilex is used as a privacy tree in Belguim. This beautiful tree requires extra attention during cultivation and the first year after planting. The only guarantee for good regrowth is planting a pot-grown tree with good roots.

Holm oak grows in Western Europe, from Northern Ireland to southern Italy. This type is reliably hardy in the UK, except if they are grown in greenhouses. Extremely wind resistant and salt-tolerant therefore also suitable for coastal areas.

A pleached quince tree makes a nice addition to an orchard. It doesn't take up a lot of space.

The quince itself is a rather unusual fruit, it is quite versatile when used in the kitchen.

As a tree, it has a very healthy look. It will provide a bit of diversity amongst other pleached fruit trees.

We offer this tree in a couple of varieties.

This parasol shape is due to the fruit.

 The grape is not self-supporting so it isn't a true parasol tree.

This tree is used as a base for a pergola that will offer you shade and fruit the very same year.

Available in 3 varieties, suitable for northern regions.

Our grapes are resistant to sickness so there is no need to treat them for anything.

We can offer Quercus hispanica in multiple stem heights.
These species are partly evergreen, usually the wilted leaf remains on the tree until the new leaves appear. However they can remain green during mild winters. This oak bears beautifully elongated acorns.
We offer this tree in tall stems and low screen forms.
Quercus hispanica is sometimes confused with Quercus ilex. The leaves are similar in terms of color. Please consider that hispanica is usually ented. Hispanica species are less durable than Quercus ilex.

The English oak as espalier.
A native pleached oak and usually planted in country-style surroundings or valuable farmland. The English oak tree grown as a normal tree is very valuable but isn't suitable for many gardens due to its large size. Our pleached screens are suitable for smaller gardens thanks to annual pruning and our selection of compact growing trees.
Maintenance
The pleached English oak is easy to maintain.
The tree is interesting for birds and bees and is loved by other valuable organisms. This pleached oak sometimes retains its withered leaves all winter. (marscessant) This feature makes it suitable to guarantee privacy but this tree is usually planted for its distinct appearance.

The oak bark has medicinal powers, the acorns are very nutritious for animals. The autumn color is orange-red and more striking when grown as espalier than in free form.
The trunk is nicely grooved. Not to be confused with the Holm oak that has the same valuable properties but is evergreen even in winter.
Quercus robur
Quercus robur 'Fastigiata'
Quercus robur 'Fastigiata Koster'
