Evergreen Holm Oak Yamadori Bonsai Material
Quercus Ilex - Holly Oak.
Holm oak is a great species for bonsai cultivation and responds well to being in a pot. Holm oak is naturalised across much of the UK particularly in costal regions where it is widely planted. It is fully frost hardy across all of the U.K. However the species does appreciate some shelter from excess wet over the winter period when grown in a pot. In summer it likes a lot of sun and is very tolerant of drought. Shaping with wire is best done mid-summer. Re-pot infrequently and only when you see the first spring leaves unfurling, alternatively we have had very good results re-potting this species in high summer. Use Kaizen Bonsai No2 Bonsai Soil Mix.
