Collected English Oak (Quercus robur)

Collected from the edge of a field. The smallest of 7 or 8 which will be collected over the coming years. Sheep and Dear make such good bonsai. Along way to go but beautiful shape.

Good find! Looks promising. I think it woud benefit designwise by cutting back more to get ramification closer to trunk.

Nice find that. Im stuck in suburbia growing acorns in pots out back.

Do you find the rhizotonic helps much with collected material? I use the canna terra vega on my plants and it drives them wild.

Hi Paul, The rhizotonic does a marvelous job. I also apply Cannazym weekly.
Thanks Sam

Hi John, I’m afraid I’m a bit of an addict.

August collection?

Post  DaveKirkland on Wed Apr 25, 2012 7:16 pm

Does anyone have experience of collecting UK quercus robur in August? bonsai4me site suggest this may be the best time, uniquely amongst UK deciduous trees. I ask because after 20 years collecting/growing bonsai I have found an incredible oak, a once in many lifetimes find, and want to consider the most experienced advice I can find before I plan its digging/development.

Hi Dave, Bonsai4me is a fantastic site and Harry obviously has a lot more knowledge and experience than me but my personal preference is still to collect in late spring. English Oaks are known for been very greedy plants when it comes to their roots. If it were me I would undercut the tree as deep as possible this year. Trench and pad out with Sphagnum Moss next year. Then collect on the third. Oaks unfortunately are not to be rushed. However it’s all dependant on the soil and conditions its growing in. I also advise the use of Cannazym and Rhizotonic to get it established.
Thanks Sam
