Nut trees

    3 responses

SLW starts with ...
I was wondering if you could suggest a suitable nut tree (apart from almond) that is suited to the warmer parts of South Australia (low rainfall). We also have heavy clay soils and some frost in winter.
Regards.

Hi SLW

Pecan comes to mind when trying to find suitable nut trees in arid parts of S.A. with lower chill unit requirements than most nuts. You need to plant two different varieties though with approximately similar flowering times for effective cross pollination. If possible try to amend you planting site with heaps of compost material and clay breaker to soften up the hard clay in your area. It's not hard to do especially if you are really keen, and determined to have a successful nut producing trees. They are drought tolerant once established but, for the first 3 years you to regularly water them adequately until established.

Happy gardening :-)

Pistachio, Walnut, Macadamia, Quandong and Sandlewood kernels, Acacia seed,
others, I would look into Arid Lands Permaculture.
