Walnut & Sweet Chestnut Trees (Bare-rooted)

The eastern black walnut is hardier and faster growing than the English Walnut and is widely grown in the United States of America. The walnut will reach a height of about 8m (25ft) in twenty years, unless contained in a Root Control Bag (this can be purchased in the tree accessories section). It grows well on a wide variety of soils provided they are deep, fertile and well-drained. An open position with shelter from spring frosts is best.

Sweet Chestnuts (also known as Spanish chestnuts) are a native of southern Europe and are now grown widely throughout Europe.  When grown as a standard they will grow to a height of around 10m (35ft) within twenty years and  will continue to grow even taller.  They are therefore not suitable for small gardens unless planted in a root control bag.  Sweet chestnuts prefer to be grown in a light sandy soil where the pH is between 5.5 and 6.5 in a sunny position sheltered from prevailing winds.

Walnut and sweet chestnut  trees are available from late November until April.
