I planted 2 carpathian english walnut trees about 12 yrs ago & about 20 feet apart. They started about knee high. One tree is about 15 feet now & the other is only about 10 feet tall. The problem is that they are not blooming at all yet. All they have done so far, is growing very slowly. They do look healthy ok. The goal was that we would have some walnut's by now.....Any idea's ??

I really appreciate the link Chuck, and this link says that the best trees produce take upto 30 yrs, but most of the information also say's that most walnut trees are producing within 6-8 yrs. & My trees are Not.....Not at all !! I do have 2 tree's & they should be self-pollinating......so, something is wrong...& I want to find it out ! lol

Have you ever had a soil test done of the soil they are growing in? With fruit and nut trees in my experience if they are healthy and growing but not producing it usually comes down to too few (or too many) nutrients or a pH issue that affects uptake. Since Walnut is happy over a pretty broad range pH is probably not your issue.

How heavily have you pruned? 12 years old and only 15' seems a bit small, if this isn't due to aggressive pruning on your part it also points to nutrient deficiency. Only real way to know is with a soil test.
