I am not a keen gardener but just dable grow a bit of veg ect.
in 2010 a pal gave me a stork with a walnut on the end,i dibed it in at the end of a plot.
The next spring i moved it to a more permenent spot in the two years it had grown to
almost half a meter/32". this year it has gone mad and is now over10ft tall and still growing
can you beet that?

Dunno, but there's an old saying that you plant Walnuts for your Grandchildren to harvest.

Another old saying:

"A Woman, a Dog, and a Walnut Tree
The more you beat them the better they'll be."

So you must have been giving that old tree some stick.
