If you fancy growing walnuts but don’t have the space, Walnut ‘Europa’ is the answer. ‘Europa’ is an especially dwarf variety of walnut, reaching only 3.5 metres tall at maturity,  unlike the common walnut which reaches a towering 30 metres. ‘Europa’s’ compact build makes it perfectly suited to small gardens. Better still this walnut crops within only 2-3 years so you won’t have long to enjoy your own home-grown walnuts. Walnuts also make beautiful specimen trees, with attractive bright green leaflets and pale bark which becomes silvery on maturity. Height and Spread: 3.5m (11.5’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow walnut trees in moist, slightly acid, well drained soil in full sun. When growing walnut trees, choose a sheltered position as young trees are easily damaged by frosts. Prior to planting walnut trees, 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 walnut trees at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and use a tree tie to fasten the tree to the stake.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info

Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, 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. Walnuts can be slow to establish and during particularly dry periods they will require watering whilst the root system develops.

Prune walnut trees between mid summer and early winter to develop a standard tree with a strong central leader. In the first year, remove laterals from the lowest third of the tree. Shorten laterals from the middle third of the tree by half. Leave laterals at the top third of the tree intact. In following years repeat the process, removing the laterals from the lower third of the tree that were shortened the previous year, until the desired length of clear stem has been achieved. By the fourth year the tree should have achieved a good height and further pruning can be kept to a minimum, removing only dead, damaged or misplaced stems.
