    We had a big storm here in South Canterbury where we have a very old walnut grove. One of the trees was blown over and I would like to know if anyone buys this wood..?
    Many thanks,

    I have finished building outside of Arrowtown in Central Otago and would like to plant 6 walnut trees.
    Can anyone advise which variety would be the most successful , where i can purchase great quality trees and should these be bare rooted.

    Many Thanks Luise

      Hi Luise, A good person to contact is David Murdoch, Prices Valley, R D 3,Little River. He is a knowledgeable horticulturalist who sells grafted walnuts trees. Franquette is a frost hardy variety which would be good for you but it might be hard to get. Otto and Valda Muller who live at Cromwell have a lot of knowledge about walnuts in your area.

    Has anyone got any plans for walnut drying bins where you use a carpet dryer, I need to make one for next year and thought someone might have a template or example I can use.

    I have a small orchard of 160 trees and they are starting to come into full production so my drying racks need a bit of help!.


    • Hi Maureen,
      I have made bins like the ones you enquire about but don’t have any plans. You’re welcome to come and look at ours or i can send you some photos. They worked very well this year.

    Hi there, I am interested to procure a couple of walnut trees which I understand would be suitable varieties for Maungatapere, Northland. The two trees I seek is one each of Shannon (1335) and Wilson Wonder. I would be grateful for the names of some suppliers that stock these varieties in the Auckland, Northland or Bay of Plenty regions please?

    Kind regards,
    Geoff Mansell
