Walnuts are not native to Britain but have traditionally been planted for the nut as well as for timber. Walnuts are mostly found in the southern half of the country where the fruits will ripen.
For those who need protection from outside influences when the foundations of life are unsettled during a major change in life - teething, puberty, starting a new school/career/job, any fundamental alteration in mental, emotional or physical state. Helps to break with the old and establish pattern of the new. Guards against anything which interferes with the workings of normal life, protects those who are attacked by subtle forces. Known as the link breaker.
