Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • This plant comes straight out of our garden to yours so plant it into your garden a.s.a.p upon receipt. Do soak the roots in a bucket of lukewarm water for about an hour before planting. Choose a spot where your hazel has room to grow - in a well drained soil, sandy and/or clay is best - and somewhere in full sun. Prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Spread the roots of your hazel and plant at the right height in the hole - the top of the roots should be at least 10 cm under soil level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water immediately. Corylus avellana (common hazel) will thrive in any moisture retaining soil. Add some well-rotted manure to improve poor soil.
