Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Walnut trees make a magnificent feature for the larger garden. French Walnut 'Lara'® is a spur bearing variety and slightly more compact than others, although it will still make spectacular proportions. This early bearing walnut produces excellent quality nuts with a unique creamy flavour from September.

Walnut 'Lara'® is propagated onto 'Juglans regia' rootstock. It is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Walnut trees may be slow to establish but will begin to produce nuts after about four years. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 9m (29').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 10 years.

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.

Walnuts make substantial trees and are suited to only the largest of gardens. They should be planted at least 9m (30ft) from any buildings. 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.
