Valued for its nuts, this majestic broadleaf tree has short trunk and broad crown; normally narrower if grown in a woodland position.
Its bark is smooth and olive-brown when young, later developing fissures and fading to silver-grey with age.
Good to grow as a specimen tree.
Best grown is any well-drained or moist but well-drained soil in full sun.
Value To Wildlife:
The leaves are great food source for moth caterpillars, whilst the nuts are eaten by a variety of small mammals, including mice and squirrels.
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.
This is a deciduous tree and so will shed its leaves in autumn, in order to protect itself from the cold winter weather. Come spring, it’ll burst back into bud and begin to flourish once more.
