  1. Hi Andy,

    I apologize for this very late reply. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your comment and bringing interesting posts on nut growing to my attention. I really look forward to further articles on post-fossil-fuel food security in Ireland. Keep me updated!

    Martin Crawford’s work came to mind while reading your ‘Going nuts’ article. Here is a link to his site if you haven’t come across it before.


    Some interesting trials with unusual crops in agroforestry systems.

    All the best,


  2. Martin has been an inspiration to many people, myself included.

    By the way, I thought the climate/heartnut maps in your dissertation were a great idea.

    Something similar has been done by the Irish Nut Growers (for walnuts and cobnuts), but taking the local topography into consideration too.


    I imagine similar maps would be very useful for the UK.
