Hi, I was hoping someone might be able to help. There were a few similar posts but I didn't quite get the answer I was looking for.
I picked up a few Walnuts from beneath a tree at the weekend and was hoping to plant them.
Firstly, do I need to remove the fleshy fruit from around the nut and if so should I crack open the shell.
Also, do I need to pre treat the seed or anything like that and if what sort of pre treatment

I picked up a few seeds to a lime tree as well. Can these be planted as they are (in their pods).

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

hi there,with the walnuts i would just carefully remove a silver of the nut with a knife just to let a little moisture in rather than cracking the nut,i have so many walnut seedling propagated naturally by jackdaws i don't know what to do with them all!!!!as for the lime you can store them in sand over winter or sow right away
in seedbeds,posibly soak them overnight first,but should grow away next spring no problem.

just chuck the walnuts in some soil; they don't need the outer flesh. i think they need a period of cold to stratify them; and beware that they send out a strong initial taproot, so beware of planting them in shallow pots.
