A hazel hedge is always going to look attractive, no matter what time of year. In spring, masses of yellow-green catkins appear before the dense foliage smothers the stems from tip to toe. Later in the year a heavy crop of cobnuts will form which are always a Christmas favourite! Most Hazelnuts are self-fertile and therefore do not require a pollination companion. Hazels will begin to produce nuts three to four years after planting. Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Prior to planting Hazelnut trees, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Cobnut trees at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and water well to settle the soil.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from the of base of the hedge. Water young plants during particularly dry periods until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the hedge. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Supplied as 60 - 90cm bareroots (24 - 31") Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).
