Wanted chestnut, walnut, oaks
« on: January 27, 2020, 09:33:35 AM »
Hi guys, I'm looking for different types of nut plants. It can be not only cold-resistant species. But also those that can be grown in a pot, for example macadamia. I am also very interested in various varieties of edible acorns.

Hello Sergei. For edible acorns, you should have a look here: https://deaflora.de/Shop/Nuesse/ I will order oak plants myself later this year. They sent me some nice akebia plants that are now growing in my garden in Denmark. Brd Sune

Hi Forester, if you are also interested in common oaks growing in Germany I can take some pictures of oaks which are growing in my surrounding. I also have walnut on my land which produces extremely hard nuts which are also a little bit larger than normal walnuts. I cab take photoes of them end of September.

Thanks usirius. It will be very interesting. Only one species of oak grows in my area, Quercus robur. I would really like to diversify our local flora, so I am interested in various frost-resistant walnut and oak.

Hi Sergey,

okay,  I only do not know the botanical names o f some wild gropwing trees with their botanical names but I iwll take some photoes of some where I am thinking which can be interesting for you! From Junglans nigra or from my  Junglans regia with thin S´nut shells I have currently nuts from last autumn available.

From our local "German" Oaks I have collected many nuts last year for trying a told method to attract woodworms  wooden things, but this method did not work therefore I threw al oaks away in winter...and I used concentrated vinegar for killing them - and, this worked....
