Nut trees tend to be undervalued as specimens for ornamental or even edible use, and yet the benefit that can be derived from growing a variety of nut trees cannot be overlooked. Nut trees lend themselves well to being Espaliered and will produce a fantastic crop of delicious and highly nutritious edibles. They bring early spring blossom magic and can be pruned to the desired size. And nuts are so versatile: they can be roasted and salted as snacks, choped and mixed into a million different baked goods, caramelised, candied, mixed with seeds and grains to make snack bars, ground to make nut-butters, sprinkled over desserts or savoury dishes, ground into flour,  etc.
