Walnut seedlings

We offer walnut seedlings from selected nuts, which guarantee you outstanding quality.

Our seedlings are both suitable for direct planting and as rootstocks for the grafting process!

Walnut rootstocks for grafting

Our Juglans regia rootstocks are ideal for grafting purposes in different sizes. The rootstocks are highly resistant to drought, as the climate in Bulgaria has been traditionally dry and is still extremely dry during the summer months.

This makes our walnut rootstocks very suitable in times of climate change and increasingly dry and warm summers all over Europe.

Of course, our walnut rootstocks are regularly officially tested regarding phytosanitary and guarantee you virus free quality.

If you need walnut rootstocks for your grafting, please contact us so we can prepare exactly the diameter at the root neck you are looking for in order to reach high success rate during your grafting.

The diameter categories of our walnut rootstocks (measured at the root neck) are usually the following:

  •  < 8mm
  •  8-20mm
  •  > 20mm

Of course, we will also arrange express transport to you.


Walnut trees for high quality, unique and first-class timber

If your main focus is not the production of nuts but more so a less intensive plantation for timber production or an integration of Juglans regia into a healthy forest, our walnut seedlings are the right choice!

Surely investment costs for walnut plants are very little compared to walnut timber yields which can be expected after 30-50 years. Even though the costs for walnut seedlings are very low, the quality of the seedlings and the root system need to be very good in order to reach high success rates. In most parts of Europe walnuts are very well integrated into forests and create a higher forest diversity. The timber which can be harvested after a few decades is one of the most expensive timbers, with its beautiful colors and is used in many fields, for example for luxurious furniture.

At the moment first class walnut timber is valued 300% higher than first class oak timber. The best thing is, it grows even as twice as quick as oak! This makes it a hard wood tree species, which can be harvested within a human life cycle or by the children generation. Without a doubt the walnut is a perfect investment to either yield the profits for one’s own pension or as a financial security for your children’s future.

How to receive first class walnut timber?

First of all, it is very important to have a straight trunk. This can be reached basically in two ways. The first one is to have natural competition through other trees which increases the side pressure onto the tree. This pushes the tree to grow naturally straight and tall. The second option is that you bind the tree to a pole in order to straighten it.


Of course, the advantage of the first option is that you are able to reach a straight stem without using a lot of labor and materials like poles.

For both ways it is crucial to have a good balance between the height of the tree and the walnut crown. Simple rules in order to keep the walnut tree stable and at the same time to receive the best timber, are: 

  • All branches must be removed when they reach a diameter of 2 cm. A 2 cm diameter can be seen flexible, so it is about an anticipatory pruning, where thick branches are removed and thin ones are left. It is important that the leaf mass remains as high as possible while at the same time removing branches early.
  • If the crown is at least 50% of the tree height and the trunk diameter at the base of the crown is at least 10 cm, all branches underneath must be removed. (no matter which branch diameter)
  • All thin branches (with a diameter of less than 2 cm) must not be removed above the point of the trunk that has a diameter of 10 cm (crown area)!
  • In the area of the knot-free trunk, all branches must be removed regularly until harvest.
