I am looking to plant an oak tree in memorial to a lost friend. Currently I am being advised contrary information on when to plant the tree. Ideally it would be as soon as possible.
I am looking to purchase a tree approx 1-2 years old and apprently 5ft ish to be planted in the South East. It will either be a red oak or english oak and that is not decided as yet.
I have been told to plant it now as nearly the end of the season for planting (i.e. within 4 weeks) and others have said wait until after the summer before planting i.e. Sept/Oct time.
I would be grateful if there were experts or those who have tried and tested to advise.
Thank you all.
