Product Information

Trees add structure and drama to a garden, and native trees bring much needed colour which changes with the seasons.

Native trees will benefit local ecosystems, providing food and shelter for many species of birds, mammals and insects. They're low maintenance, thriving naturally in favourable conditions and being native can cope with our rainfall.

Environmentally, native trees help combat global warming by using carbon dioxide and also help protect from flooding by preventing soil erosion, reducing surface run off and slowing large floods - two of the most important environmental considerations at present!

A large, spreading deciduous shrub, the common hazel is one of our most-loved nut trees, with yellow catkins in spring followed by its edible nuts in autumn.

Its rounded leaves turn yellow in autumn and are a food source for many species of butterfly, while the nuts are enjoyed by many mammals and birds - including us!

Hazel wood is very supple when young and has been used in the past as thatching spars, fencing and furniture.
It is an important tree in forestry management whereby it is coppiced - a traditional way to produce useful wooden stakes and poles, using the ability of hazel to naturally regenerate from the cut base.

Coppicing involves cutting stems down to the ground which encourages the plant to send up vigorous new shoots.

This young tree has been grown in the UK from UK-sourced seed and is supplied as a plug-grown sapling 20-40cm from end to end, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

Add mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole to help your new tree establish quicker.

Care Information

  • Best in an open sunny site is most soil types.
  • If your planting area is overgrown, cut the grass short and weed.
  • When planting, dig a hole 3 x the size of the plug and incorporate some organic matter.
  • Plant at the same level as the top of the plug - look for the mark on the tree where it originally started to grow above the ground.
  • Backfill gently around the tree and water in well. Don't compact the soil.
  • Stake young trees with a cane to prevent lopsided growth.
  • Add a tree guard if necessary.

 

Pruning Advice:

  • Hard pruning is not recommended, and mature trees require very little attention.
  • When pruning is required, prune only when fully dormant from late summer to before mid-winter to prevent 'bleeding'.
  • When young, any laterals can be removed to produce a clear trunk, along with any dead, diseased or damaged branches.
