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 1.5 to 1.7 metres in a 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 Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

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.
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.
