Our Feedback
I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic service you gave me when I purchased a Ruby Anniversay rose bush from you. I ordered by telephone and spoke to a lady who was very helpful and polite. I received the rose bush in time for my Mum & Dad's anniversary, beautifully looked after and very carefully packaged. My parents loved it. Thank you again for a wonderful service. I will not hesitiate to recommend you to friends and family.

The King of nuts!

This is an outstanding variety of grafted Walnut, being very hardy and late into leaf - so is rarely damaged by frost.

Unripe nuts are fantastic for pickling. For the more adventurous you can grind the hard shells of ripe nuts and use as a stuffing in the traditional Italian pasta dish 'Agnolotti'.

Despite being a compact variety, if left un-pruned Broadview will grow to a fairly large tree - up to 30 feet (9 metres) tall with a spread of 20 feet (6 metres). With careful pruning a fruiting bush of around 12 - 15 (3.65 - 4.6 metres) can be produced. To keep to this sort of size tip prune regularly throughout the growing season when five or six leaves of growth have been made. It is important to prune regularly otherwise the tree will grow away; if this does occur and you need to perform any heavy pruning this must only be undertaken in the dormant season otherwise the tree will bleed profusely.

  • Compact in habit, Broadview can start cropping as early as its third year and produces a heavy crop of nuts.
  • Apomictic (produces nuts without pollination) - so effectively Self Fertile.

It is often said that Walnut trees will inhibit the growth of other plants in the garden (apples, potatoes and tomatoes are particularly susceptible as far as edible plants are concerned); this is more so true with Black Walnuts (Juglans nigra) than with cultivars of Juglans regia such as Broadview. That said, care should be taken as these too release juglone (a kind of poison that inhibits plant growth) from their roots and also from their leaves. The rule of thumb is avoid planting anything under or within a few feet of the canopy or eventual canopy of the tree (the roots underneath can be estimated to spread as far as the tree on top) and make sure you clear up and burn the fallen leaves - certainly don't compost them!
