Q.Can I Grow Quercus Ilex Pleached Trees In Pots?

Zone MK18 4LQ | NickDeane85 added on October 18, 2023 | Answered

I have purchased 3 Quercus Ilex Pleached Trees, which I intend to grow in pots to form a screen in the front garden where is isn’t possible to dig holes to plant in the ground. They are 5 foot tall. Is it possible to grow them in pots, if so what size and what compost/soil? I live in Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, sheltered site, partial shade.

These are not normally cultivated in container due to its large size, but with a large enough container, it can be possible. Make sure that the container is at least 2 times the size of the original container, and size up when trees start to seem rootbound.
