Turkey Oak Large Bonsai Starter Tree - Potted

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 have been prepared for bonsai including having the tap root removed. Now established two years in their pots and ready for some shaping work with wire.
