Black Walnuts are a very attractive and sweetly aromatic tree. They can reach 45m/150ft with a spreading habit making it a truly magnificent tree for parklands and very large gardens. It is often a good idea if you have the space, to plant more than one as they will thrive better. Another tip, they do not like to be transplanted so it is best to plant out while still young and small.
A deciduous tree with distinctive ridged bark and aromatic foliage turning butter yellow in autumn. Insignificant female flowers and male catkins are followed by a delicious abundance of nuts in the autumn providing a valuable source of phosphorus.
Walnuts do not need much maintenance.
They prefer a heavy moist soil and in spring, weed, mulch and spray with seaweed solution. In summer young fruit can be picked for pickling and come autumn enjoy the wonderful bounty of nuts the tree provides. Walnuts must only be pruned in autumn as they bleed in spring. They usually require minimal pruning but branches can become massive so remove badly positioned ones early.
The tree is not very valuable for wildlife but provides shelter and beauty on the landscape. and Not that we want any more grey squirrels but Red squirrels used to thrive on the nuts.
The tree is watered before carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
