Product Information

Introducing – The ‘Cork’ Oak! A Magical Tree With Knobbly Bark That Is Harvested To Make Wine Corks!


The national tree of Portugal, it is an evergreen beauty that will potentially live for hundreds of years!


Completely winter hardy, (down to -15c!), it is incredibly low maintenance and slow growing in your garden – it’s even perfect for a large pot!


Fossils of this tenacious beauty have been found in prehistoric forests in Portugal which have been carbon dated and thought to be more than 25 million years old!


In its native Portugal, the trees are grown in ‘Cork’ orchards, where the bark has been carefully harvested for over 300 years, in an ancient process – the bark can only be harvested every 8-9 years or so.


The best quality bark is then turned in to corks for the fine wine industry with the remainder being used for a multitude of things.


Once the bark is stripped, the trunks and branches reveal an incredibly attractive ochre colour!


Supplied as a well-established potted tree in a 3 litre pot, approximately 80cm tall.

Top Tips

Cork Trees can also be grown as indoor Bonsai Trees if you live in a cooler climate or are limited on space. This process is a lot more involved than leaving the Cork Tree to its own devices outdoors, but can be very rewarding when done correctly.

Care Information

  • Grow in any well-drained but moisture-retentive soil in good light.
  • Well suited to larger gardens and parkland.
