A very regal tree, hence its latin name Juglans regia. The Common Walnut was thought to have arrived in Britain with the arrival of the Romans. The Common Walnut (Juglans regia) is a native tree of South-East Europe. Found largely in the Southern and Central regions of Britain, it is rarer in the North of the country. Valued for its timber, this tree makes for a stately tree given a large garden, as its height is a mere 30m (100ft). A slow-growing tree, this tree has a delightful aromatic folaige. Did you know that wine can be made from this foliage?
Juglans Regia although considered an ornamental tree will produce nuts but will take a long time so do not buy this for nuts if you are near retirement or have discovered the secret of eternal youth. If you are planning on giving nuts to your children after you shuffle off this planet then Juglans Regia Walnut will be a good choice for you.
Our Common Walnut Trees are supplied at a height of 1.25 to 2.00 metres in a 7-12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
