Nut Trees

Named varieties of hazelnuts and grafted walnuts reliably produce large, high-quality nuts and start bearing at a young age. Seedling walnut and heartnut will produce nuts of variable quality and may take a little longer to start producing. Grow at least two different varieties/seedlings for good pollination, or hazels will be readily pollinated by wild trees in hedges and woods.

We aim to have a wider selection of nuts available in winter 2021, including grafted, named varieties of Sweet Chestnut and Heartnut.

Hazel ‘Webb’s Prize Cobb’: An easy to grow and reliable hazel, with of large clusters of tasty nuts. 2 year old bare-root trees 80-100cm, tall: Sold Out for this year

Grafted Walnuts: Good quality, vigorous 1 year bare-root trees, 100cm tall: £38

Varieties available:

  • ‘Chandler’: Partially self-fertile, disease resistant, mid-late leafing so vulnerable to very late frosts
  • ‘Fernette’: Disease resistant, good pollinator. Recent French variety, late fruiting.
  • ‘Fernor’: Disease resistant, very heavy crops. Recent French variety, late fruiting.
  • ‘Franquette’: Partially self-fertile, disease resistant. Very vigorous old variety, very late leafing & fruiting
  • ‘Lara’: Recent French variety, precocious, heavy crops on less vigorous trees. Earlier leafing so vulnerable to late frost.

Seedling Walnut: Vigorous bare-root trees 30-60cm: £12 Likely to be good pollinators for grafted trees.

Seedling Heartnut (Juglans ailantifolia var. cordiformis): 2 year pot grown trees: £12 Note that seedling trees will produce good crops of nuts, but may revert to Japanese Walnut (Juglans ailantifolia var. ailantifolia) with round (not heart-shaped) nuts with thicker shells.

Pine Nut (Stone Pine Pinus pinea): 1 year seedlings 10-15cm: £4 Note that although named varieties of Pine Nut trees have recently been developed in Spain, most Pine Nuts grown commercially are from unnamed seedlings. Plant 2 or more seedlings of the same species for good pollination. Our plants have recently been repotted into 9cm pots and are best grown on for a year or two in pots or a nursery bed before planting in their final location.
