Charles Hulbert-Powell offers practical advice on choosing from the different varieties of walnut trees available; planting, maintaining and pruning; improving the soil, harvesting and storing nuts. He describes the uses of walknuts, as food and for oil, and explains the history of the walnut's cultivation round the world. The uses of the timber are described and illustrated, and there are chapters on the nutritional value of the walnut and ideas and recipes for making the most of this versatile food. A further chapter illustrates how the walnut has appeared in art, sometimes symbolically, over the centuries.
