Walnut

Juglans regia

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to current growing conditions this species may be shorter than we usually expect and fall outside of approximations given.

Walnut trees are not native to Britain, being originally brought to the UK by the Romans who grew the species for its nuts. Although its nuts are still enjoyed as food, walnut is now often grown for its timber, which is fine with a decorative, wavy grain.

Walnut estimated full grown height:

25-35 metres, growing an estimated 10-50cm each year.

Purchase size and growth:

Due to current growing conditions this species may be shorter than we usually expect and fall outside of approximations given.

Please be aware that these walnut saplings are smaller than usual (5cm+) but perfectly formed. They are well rooted, healthy saplings that will grow into big, strong walnut trees. Cell grown trees can be planted all year round in most situations as long as they are given the correct care. Please note, depending upon the time of year you receive your sapling (particularly early spring) it may not look very perky upon arrival. but please do not worry, as once it has been planted it should pick up quickly.

Value to wildlife:

Walnut leaves are the food plant for caterpillars of a number of micro moths, and the nuts are eaten by mammals including mice and squirrels.

Walnut preferred soil type or environmental conditions:

Walnut prefers well-drained, fertile and alkaline loam soils (a soil that is not very clayey or sandy).

UK and Ireland Sourced and Grown (UKISG):

Every sapling that we provide is UK and Ireland sourced and grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK and Ireland, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track each individual tree.

The images in this product listing show the saplings bundled and wrapped. This plastic wrap is made from LDPE (low-density polyethylene) and is 100% recyclable, we encourage users to recycle them when you are ready to plant your trees.

Planting information:

As a rough guide, trees are usually planted at around 2m intervals but please take into account the final size of the tree and be aware of buildings, services and other plants nearby to ensure that damage cannot occur from the roots and canopy as the tree grows.

Oct-Feb - This is the best time of year for planting trees and your sapling is dormant, as long as it is kept free from frost and wind as well as being kept moist and in light conditions then it will last a few weeks before planting.

Mar-Sept - Your sapling is growing fast and will need planting as soon as possible. Planting it immediately will ensure it does not dry out, lose nutrients etc.

Please note that you may require tree protection if your saplings will be at risk of damage from mammals such as rabbits or deer. Take a look at our available tree protection options.

On-going care requirements:

Once planted, your tree will need some care and attention for a few years; this will mainly be weeding around the base to reduce the competition for nutrients and ensuring your tree has enough water. For more information about caring for your trees, click here.
