Corylus Avellana Hazel Hedging Plants
Corylus Avellana Hazel Bare Root Hedging Plants 60-90cm
Hazel Corylus Avellana is a large fast growing deciduous hedging plant with large mid-green leaves.
In spring it is smothered with distinctive pale yellow fluffy catkins known as lambs tails and alongside the catkins are less noticeable flowers. Clusters of sweet edible oval nuts covered with green husks become fully ripe by September/October.
The Hazel round large leaves turn an attractive orange gold in autumn.
Great to grow as your own hazel sticks for growing peas and beans.
Excellent for feeding and encouraging the birds in the winter.
Planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose or tree compost or any organic matter( but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth. Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry), so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth). Plant 4 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart). Clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth. These plants will grow in any soil, in sun or shade.
Hazel once established will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
Each plant is approx 60cm-90cm and bare root.
