Holm oak in a light pot size of your choice.

A majestic tree, the holm oak is perfect in a large garden. For its resistance to fire and drought, it is used in the reforestation of southern forests but also in truffle farming. A tree that never leaves you indifferent!

Quercus ilex, better known as "holm oak", is a tree native to the Mediterranean region and more generally to South-West Europe where it grows spontaneously in sunny scrublands. This tree can live for hundreds of years!

The holm oak can reach 20 m in height with a spread of 15 m. This species of oak  is very adapted to drought and poor, calcareous soils. Full, hot sun suits it perfectly, however it adapts well to the oceanic climate and the southern half of France.

This oak is very home-like, if you choose to sow it, it will be in its final location, just like for a classic plantation. Note that sowing (done in autumn) requires patience.

If you choose to plant a young subject, plant it in fall.

Exposure

The holm oak thrives in full sun if possible facing south.

Ground

The holm oak grows best in well-drained, calcareous or neutral soil. If the soil is too heavy, add compost and river sand when planting.

Watering

Water regularly in summer to ensure recovery over the first two years. Then this tree is adapted to drought.

Fertilizer

No need to make any amendments.

Size

There is no need to prune this beautiful tree with its naturally rounded shape.

Rusticity

Holm oak is moderately hardy (up to -7°C). However, when it has been installed for several years, it can withstand lower temperatures (down to -12°C) over a short period of time and in well-drained soil.
