Had not noticed the ignore feature Hostafan, very useful. Don't worry, I'm not going to be deterred from using the forum over a couple of uninformed comments, it can be a fantastic source of information for a relatively young gardener who's peers aren't bitten by the gardening bug yet. Instagram is a brilliant support tool to a website like this allowing gardeners to see more of the design aspects of other gardens in support of the practical advice given on here. ✌🏼❤️

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?

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.
