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.

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.
