Black Walnut Plants - Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee
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.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order. Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
