Description

A beautiful ornamental tree as well as a productive one, almond 'Ingrid' is the most reliable cropper in the UK, producing pale green velvety fruits containing high-quality nuts with a delightful flavour. This self-fertile variety produces stunning pale pink blossom in March and April, adding superb early spring interest to your garden before most other blossoms are out. Prunus 'Ingrid' has long, pointed leaves that show reasonable resistance to leaf curl. It will thrive in a sunny, sheltered spot that offers some protection from late frosts. Nuts are ready to harvest in early autumn – September or even late August. Height and spread: 5m (16ft).

How to Grow
Although perfectly hardy, almond trees require a frost free winter and a warm dry summer in order to produce a crop. Grow almond trees in a sheltered, sunny position in any well drained, neutral soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil, and drive a stake into the planting hole to support the tree once it is planted. Plant almonds at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and use a tree tie to fasten the tree to the stake.
More Info

Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. Remove any suckers at ground level in spring, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Almond blossom is particularly susceptible to frost and may require protecting by a layer of fleece.

Like all members of the Prunus family, the almond tree should only be pruned in summer to avoid the risk of bacterial infection. Almonds fruit on one year old wood. They require little pruning other than the occasional removal of any damaged or crowded branches. However should fruits become bitter, then more frequent pruning is required to encourage new leaf growth which will help to dissipate the chemicals which cause this bitterness, thereby preventing the fruits becoming bitter.
