The last remnants of summer are steadily fading away, as temperatures drop and leaves begin to fall. Fortunately, this is an excellent period for UK gardening, with vivid autumn colours dominating the landscape, and the 2013 planting season almost ready to commence.

In the interest of the season, English Woodlands are seeking to promote members of the Oak tree family, or ‘Quercus’, with a detailed planting and selection overview already released via the company blog. The entire range is targeted towards more stately environments, perfect for expansive gardens, though appropriate for public use among parks and gardens, or put in place as shelter and focal points along streets and avenues. With the planting season ready to commence, there’s no better time to prepare public spaces for growth in the following year.

Three variants are currently being highlighted, starting with Q. rubra, the Red Oak, noted for a staggering ultimate height of 25 metres, and deep autumn colouring ranging from orange-red to scarlet leaves, depending on the temperature.

The slightly more manageable Q. palustris, or ‘Pin Oak’, eventually stands at an ultimate height of 20 metres, and famed for an expansive spread of horizontal branches, creating a striking silhouette during the winter.

Both can be found currently via the company’s online store, with sizes available from 1.75-2 metres for Q. rubra, and 3-4 metres in the case of Q. palustris. Off-site even more variants are available, and interested parties can either contact English Woodlands or visit the company’s 12 acre nursery in East-Sussex for a closer look at variants like Q. coccinea, the ‘Scarlet Oak’, known for deep, vivid autumn colour.

For customers seeking to plant in a more enclosed space, the company are currently offering a 20% discount off Liquidambar; just enter the code AMBAR13 at checkout any time before October 31st.
