The Black Walnut tree, Juglans nigra, is a vigorous, deciduous plant with excellent nuts (although they are tricky to open). The husk of the nut stains everything black (so wear gloves) 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. Black walnut timber is highly prized and well grown, mature trees are now worth a great deal of money, so why not plant a few as a pension? Kill two birds with one stone, and use it as a screening tree at the same time . It will eventually reach about 30 metres high.
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).
History & uses of Juglans nigra: Black Walnuts are American natives that were brought to Britain in the mid-1600's by John Tradescant. They have now naturalised across Southern Britain.
