Nut tree for a small garden

Posted: 27/02/2017 at 19:40

Hello everyone, I would like a nut tree approximately 3m/4m tall for my tennis court sized garden, it would be positioned against a south facing wall, and i live in west yorkshire.

Does anyone have any suggestions on the variety i should be looking at?

Wipe your windows with a cloth with some fairy liquid on, it'll stop them steaming up, works for me 👍🏼

Just read somewhere that they are edible, have any of you tried it? Is it worth trying or are they just horrible?

Lupins from Wilkos

Leave them dry in the garage until the end of Feb, (should say on the packet) then stick them in the ground where you want them to flower, water them in and they will do great. I grew them for the first time  last year (also bought from Wilkinsons when they were fresh in) this way and had flowers from them for months. Beware that slugs love em. 

Greenhouse Footings

With metal stakes through the base of the frame into postcrete, 3 of the 4 corners were still anchored, the front left sheered off at the greenhouse base. All cleared away now

Make sure its not a Palram greenhouse Victoria. As you can see its not very good. You've all made me laugh, it's only a greenhouse, all dismantled and in the back of the garage now. We are turning that area into a seating area with a fire pit and surrounded with evergreen grasses in the adjacent border so it's not at all, all bad.
