NotesIn 1762 the Exeter nurseryman William Lucombe noticed an interesting Turkey Oak/Cork Oak hybrid that was evergreen.  He took cuttings and grew them on for sale.  He discovered that the acorns were fertile but they do not produce identical trees.  One of the original trees was planted in Kew Gardens in 1773 and it still stands there today.  More about Lucombe Oaks here.info
