Walnuts

Postby PLUMPUDDING » Sat Jul 23, 2016 8:04 am

I've had a walnut tree for about ten years and it produced it's first nuts three years ago, not many, 9 or 10 max, but this year it has hundreds.

I was wondering whether to feed and mulch it. Does anyone have experience of walnut cropping?

I don't know about walnuts, but my general advice would be to mulch it. If nothing else it'll help keep weeds down

Thanks. I suppose it has just reached maturity. I think I'll see how the crop turns out this year and feed and mulch it next spring.
