Sweet almond trees are very ornamental producing showy, light pink blossom early on in the spring. It is possible to harvest useful quantities of nuts so long as the blossom does not get damaged by frost. They have a very similar growth habit and requirements to peaches and nectarines. Trees are available from late November to late April.
For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
