All Nut Trees

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.

Choosing, Growing & Harvesting Nut Trees

If you want crops of nuts within several years, opt for Hazelnut trees or the most mature Walnut trees. For a small garden, Corylus maxima 'Red Filbert' is a good choice. Hazelnuts and walnuts can both be picked in autumn. Nuts can be used as a tasty snack or for culinary uses. They are generally high in protein and 'good' fats, as well as having a low glycemic index.
