Little walnuts in my new garden
« on: August 10, 2019, 02:55:14 PM »
Hello community!

I tell you that I bought a house, it is quite abandoned, and the same goes for your garden. I haven't had much money left to improve the state of the house, but I do have time to work in the garden (something I love). From there comes the next query (I have many more but I will start with this one).

Inside the jadin there are two small walnuts (approximately two meters high), the garden is not very large so I think they will occupy too much place if I let them grow freely, that is why I consider two options:

- Option 1: keep the size of the plants controlled by pruning. I am not an expert for what I have sought information, find this article on pruning of walnuts, who tell me is correct what it indicates there ?.

- Option 2: wait for the right time to extract the two plants and transplant them in my field. As for this, do you think they will survive the transplant?

Which of the two options is the viable? I hope you know how to advise me. :)

How do you know they are walnuts?

And if so, Walnut trees grow quite large...so would have to be transplanted if you don't want large trees there.

However, I'm guessing they are like Pecan trees which have very deep taproots and usually don't survive transplanting even when just a foot tall seedling, much less a 6' sapling.

For009, I would also consider about setting weed barriers around them. They can separate normal plants or trees from grass, and allow people to strew whatever they want near the tree. Two months ago, I've been searching for the best barriers and could find this resource ( website: https://bestyardproducts.com/best-weed-barriers/ ), where author explained everything about each model of weed barrier and how to maintain them.

I agree with the above, I would consider setting weed barriers around them. They can separate normal plants or trees from grass, and allow people to strew whatever they want near the tree. I've found some good resources for finding the best barriers such as https://www.treeservicenorfolk.com and https://www.carmelintreeservice.com , where author explains everything about each model of weed barrier and how to maintain them.

I would control the size of the walnut plants by pruning and follow guidelines suggested on the article you linked about pruning walnut trees.

I agree with the other posters that you should do some research on the walnuts. I would be hesitant to just start pruning without some prior knowledge or skill that may harm that tree.
