Quick Overview

Oak Bonsai Starter Tree


We have chosen to offer Turkey oak because of it's superior resilience
over English oak. Turkey oak is resistant to mildew, galls and the
million other afflictions that assail English oak. Turkey oak is a
much tougher tree more suited to growing as bonsai, it's drought
tolerant and unfazed by the high root temperatures common in pot
cultivation. Thrives in even the harshest conditions, including
alkaline soils, polluted air, dry ground and by the sea. A beautiful
tree with bright green slightly hairy leaves and extremely fast
growing. Leaves reduce in size as twig density increases. These trees
all have fairly heavy trunks relative to their size.
