Wimpole Estate looks after a National Juglans Collection and they are in flower during May.
Quote of the day:
“… then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Forage in March for:
Cleavers, Dandelion flowers and leaves, Gorse flowers, Ground Elder , Hop shoots, Alexanders, Primroses, Wild Plum blossom, Sweet Violets
I had no idea there were so many types of walnuts. Sweet flowers!
😉 and I apologise for no American examples, but my photos of those weren’t so great.
We have only the local black walnut, whose husks stain everything a brown-black.
Lol … they all have that in common!
What a fascinating post. I love walnut trees and am always impressed by how very cautious they are in flowering and then leafing, no frost damage for them!
They need to be cautious, ‘cos they are often caught by May frosts here. This year has been kind to them though, so I am anticipating a good crop 🙂
