I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.

Whether you prefer yours picked, chopped, or placed atop a rich home-made coffee cake, there's plenty of reasons to grow your own walnuts at home if you can spare the space. Our grafted walnut trees are effectively self-fertile, so after around three years a single specimen will provide a plentiful crop for you to enjoy as you wish.
We recommend that with our walnut trees, you avoid planting anything under the tree's canopy, and prune regularly but carefully to keep the walnut tree at around 12 - 15 feet tall.
A compact and hardy variety that is rarely damaged by frost. Relatively fast into production - usually within three years. Apomictic (Self Fertile).
Supplied as a containerised tree pruned to approximately 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall including pot.
