Common Name: Hazel
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Soil type: Clay/heavy, Moist
Often grown as a large, multi-stemmed shrub rather than a tree, the common hazel has large, rounded, leathery leaves. It makes a good addition to informal shrub plantings, where is forms a useful backdrop to more showy species. Plants bear attractive, long catkins in spring which are followed in autumn by edible nuts. It responds well to coppicing and the resulting straight stems can be woven into screens and rustic plant supports. It dislikes shallow soil which quickly dries out in summer.
Hazel is used to make walking sticks or garden poles and can be made into hurdles. The hedge can be trimmed into any shape or size and will tolerate most conditions including shade and exposed areas. Great food for squirrels

Hazel, arrived exceptionally quickly and was packaged very, on unwrapping, I found that although it was said to be leafless, it had leafs which had been very carefully wrapped around the stem, which once wrapped carefully were in near perfect condition, and the start of buds growing, I'm extremely impressed with the quality and would not hesitate to not purchase more when required, but would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in buying... +5*
