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), we have some larger potted Red Kernelled trees as well.

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

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