Hazel

The varieties of Hazel trees that we grow are selected for their heavy, regular crops. The catkins are also prolific and provide some late winter cheer to the garden! Picking begins in September for fresh eating, or left until fallen to the ground for collection for winter storage.

For pollination, any two varieties, including Filberts, will cross pollinate. However, specific pollinators are suggested for each variety. If planting near a hedge containing the wild nut, a pollinator is less essential.

Hazel trees are best grown on shallow, less than fertile soils. Yellow male flowers (catkins) and the female red stigmas are produced on separate parts of the same tree.
