Although nuts can be found in large quantities in nature in the fall, nut trees are also a favourite among garden trees. Typical nut varieties are hazelnut, walnut, peanut and almond. One of the lesser well known is the bladdernut, for example.
In almost all cases, nuts grow on shrubs or trees, so they need some space and time to grow. For children it can be very exciting to plant a walnut and then see how a small sapling develops and then turns into a huge tree over the years.
