In Season Out of season
The Black Walnut tree, Juglans nigra, is a vigorous, deciduous plant with excellent nuts, although they are tricky to open.
Walnut is not suitable for a clipped hedge.
It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 30 metres high. It is a good, tall windbreak tree.
The plants on this page are young saplings. You can also buy larger Black Walnut trees here.
Black Walnut plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).
General description of Juglans nigra:
The husk of the nut stains everything black and the kernel is harder to remove from the inner shell than the common walnut, but we promise that it is all worth the effort!
Black walnuts will stop many other plants from growing near them, so we've made a list of suitable companion plants that will be happy next to your trees.
History & uses of Juglans nigra:
Black Walnuts are an American tree that was brought to Britain in the mid-1600's by John Tradescant. They are naturalised across Southern Britain.
