Description

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
