Nut trees

Nussbäume

Buying a walnut, planting a walnut and then growing and reaping the awards is a real pleasure. Just because walnut trees are not found that often in gardens, it does not mean that their fruits, harvested straight from the tree, are not an exciting harvest for the home gardener. When we think about the nut …we think of something that needs to be cracked: one has to invest some time and work on a nut tree and then the hard nut shell has to be cracked in order to reach the soft and aromatic core. Even the enjoyment of a nut itself takes time: the taste of the nut does not hit the palate immediately, but only after a few chews do all the aromatic tastes and oil components come forth in their entire richness. Nevertheless, walnut trees are very simple and loyal. Once established they can accompany us through our whole garden life.

Walnut Trees And Walnut Varieties

Although the word “walnut” in Central Europe is initially thought of as the real walnut, the common nut, and Juglans regia, the fruit family of the nuts is much richer. In the online Lubera garden shop, you will find walnuts and hazelnut bushes and also different varieties of almond which is also a nut, although it is botanically closer to the peach.  The new, compact walnut varieties Lara and Europa, however, just go to show that it is no longer necessary to wait for walnut trees.  These varieties also prove that walnut trees no longer need to grow indefinitely into the sky, but can grow into beautiful and compact trees with maximum heights from 3 to 4 metres and these can be found exclusively in the Lubera garden shop. The Japanese heartnut, botanical Juglans ailantifolia var. Cordiformis, is also pleasantly surprising with its heart-shaped shells and kernels and fabulous taste!

Walnut Trees From Lubera

For the walnuts and heartnuts we offer only grafted walnut trees. This is the only way to guarantee the quality and variety of the trees, the great tasty fruits and, above all, the early harvesting after 3-5 years. The grafting of walnut trees is very complex and very difficult, but it leads to much better and more fertile trees than the seedlings that are often offered. At Lubera we have our own nut tree specialists, who are responsible for the delicate cultivation. But beware: it is absolutely essential to order walnut trees at an early stage, as we can only produce limited quantities and individual varieties are already sold out almost every year.

How To Plant Nut Trees

Nut trees can be planted all year round, as the young plants in the Lubera garden shop are offered in a large, 10 L pot. We have developed a particularly gentle packaging system at Lubera, so that we can ship large trees in the 10 litre pots without any problem. It is important that before planting the tree, the root balls are loosened and the roots growing from these balls are spread out. The walnut tree should be supported with a post for its first growing phase, but from the fifth year on, the tree should be sufficiently stable enough that you can take the stake away. In the first year, a freshly planted walnut tree usually shows little growth, but then it starts to grow vigorously in the second year and from the third year it should be possible to start harvesting healthy nuts.

The Right Location For Walnut Trees

Walnut trees should always be planted in a location that is not very susceptible to spring late frosts, as these can damage the late blossoms of the walnut trees in May. In cold winter locations, the walnut trees should be protected against the cold in the first three years, but later they will become hardy during the winter. Nut trees are basically self-fertile, but an older walnut tree nearby or the planting of two different walnut varieties, will ensure and increase the yield.

A walnut tree in your own garden, will not only produce fruits every year, but will also provide lots of shade. Falling autumn leaves can also be used in the garden, e.g. in the case of root vegetables, to ward off mice.
