Which two varieties should do well in West Wales (inland from Borth) to get nuts?
I understand that two genetically different ones are needed for pollenation.
Daughter has just moved and has a decent garden!

If you have squirrels don’t bother

I’ve got pretty much every variety available in the uk, can’t say there’s much difference in cropping

Tree rats with PR! I don't know about different varieties, but the natural ones in both our garden and the woods are producing well at the moment. So far no sign of squigges in the garden, but plenty of evidence of them in the woods. Perhaps it is time to take the air gun with us and bag a few for the pot.
