Almond trees provide a beautiful display of delicate pink blossom early in the season. In southerly or sheltered places in the UK, they can also produce excellent, nutritious nuts. In September, simply shake the tree to harvest the crop of tasty almonds, then separate the hulls from the nut. These trees are not large and can be pruned in late summer to shape. All varieties are self-fertile so a good crop is possible with just one tree.
When growing, almond trees will tolerate any moderately fertile soils as long as they are well-drained. Best planted in a sunny location. The late frosts can damage the early blossom so they’re much happier grown in a sheltered position. Make sure you protect the nuts from birds if you would like to eat them yourself!
