Common Walnut (Juglans regia)

It is hardy to zone 5. It flowers in June, and the nuts ripen in October. The flowers are pollinated by Wind. The plant is self-fertile.

The kernels are eaten raw or used in confections, cakes, ice cream etc, a delicious flavour.

The dormant plant is very cold tolerant, tolerating temperatures down to about -27°C without serious damage, but the young spring growth is rather tender and can be damaged by late frosts.

Some late-leafing cultivars have been developed, these often avoid damage from spring frosts and can produce a better quality timber tree.


  • Walnut Common Scions

    Walnut trees are a popular choice for home growers because they produce delicious nuts and can live for centuries. However, growing walnut trees from seed can be a slow and unpredictable process. This is where grafting comes in.

    The success of walnut tree grafting depends on a number of factors, including the type of graft used, the condition of the rootstock and scion, and the temperature at which the graft is performed. The optimal temperature for walnut tree grafting is 27 degrees Celsius. At this temperature, the callus tissue will form quickly and the graft will be more likely to be successful.

    If the graft is successful, the scion wood will begin to grow and the rootstock tree will provide support for the new tree. The new tree will typically begin to bear fruit in about 5 years.

    With a little care and attention, you can successfully scion graft a walnut tree and enjoy fresh, homegrown walnuts for years to come.

    Please Note - We take orders for scions from May onwards, but shipping is only normally during January to March.
