HI,  try Kew Gardens, Kew, London, UK.  No more address necessary though
personally I'd ring them.  

Beware:  The Japanese recently imported a container of Q. Robur acorns
from Sherwood Forest (good undiluted stock) at enormous expense only to
have them killed off when the port authority fumigated the container.
(Slight snigger).  

Do tell what you're up to.  Are you going to propogate millions of oaks
for your kids or something?  I resist answering your very erudite
message with "try the park".  Best Regards,
Les Ballard         Les at gates.demon.co.uk
