Walnuts

Known traditionally as English or Persian walnuts, our range of Juglans regia cultivars is available 50-70cm 1 year old grafted trees or 1.2m Bare-Rooted grafted trees (in season)

They should fruit within 3-4 years, the Bare-Rooted probably within 2, plant 2 or more trees to ensure good pollination.

Depedning on the trees chosen you will need appropriate pollination, ask for advice.  If you already have local walnuts close by that will aid pollination if the male flowers coincide.

If we have Bare-Root trees in stock in spring we will often pot them in 10-12L containers, ask for availability

All cultivars are priced at £30 for this pot grown and £22.50 for bare-rooted trees, large pots subject to pricing confirmation.
