I have just joined this forum so this is my first post - hello all
I have been doing some research along similar lines and I believe there are three types of nut you can grow in the UK, Almond, Filbert and Walnut but the further north you are the less choice you have.
I think the best site I have found is rvrogers.co.uk (and follow fruit) as they provide a good description (I am not connected with them in any way).
Our allotment site is currently clear of squirrels and I am concerned about encouraging them. If I were to plant Filberts, which I would like to do, would this cause other allotment holders and problems? For instance, would the squirrels attracted by the nut trees then go on to eat next door's onions, potatoes carrots, or whatever?
Interested in your experiences and views.
