Selection of nut trees for a slightly more unusual addition to the garden. These hardy nut trees produce nuts that are both ornamental and edible. You can either harvest them for yourself or let the wildlife enjoy them. We also stock a range of ornamental Hazel trees.
If you want crops of nuts within several years, opt for Hazelnut trees or the most mature Walnut trees. Corylus colurna, Corylus maxima ‘Red Filbert’ and Almond ‘Ingrid’ all offer particularly attractive ornamental properties in addition to producing nuts, with 'Red Filbert' being the smallest and thus ideal when space is limited.
Hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds can be picked in autumn. They make a tasty snack or useful culinary ingredient. They are typically high in protein and 'good' fats, as well as having a low glycemic index.
