Hazel


Hazel (Corylus avellana) is native to the UK and can be found growing extensively in woodlands as trees but will also be found in most countryside hedges.  It can be coppiced back if grown as an individual tree and clipped hard as a hedge plant.  With its autumnal bounty of Hazelnuts (sometimes known as Cobnuts), hazel is known to many as a very British tree.  It will grow on many different soil types and is a good all rounder native hedge species when planted as part of a mixed species native hedge.  We normally stock hazel as bare root plants during the colder months of the year which is a cost effective way of planting a mixed species native hedge.  Scroll down for more information on the plants that we have available.
