Description

Hazelnut is one of the first plants to bloom in spring. Pairs or triplets of male catkins on the twigs in autumn elongate into dripping, yellowy locks as the frost leaves the ground in spring. Hazelnuts establish themselves in a wide range of soils, tolerating considerable dryness in summer but never wet feet. This native plant can be grown as an understory shrub, though fruiting will diminish in shade. Farm Pick-up Only
