Cobnuts & Filberts (Bare-rooted)
Cobnuts and filberts are related species of hazelnut (Corylus). They are both small trees which bear separate male and female flowers on the same tree. The male flowers are the familiar catkins and the female are small, red and unobtrusive. They are wind pollinated and two varieties are needed to ensure good cross-pollination and should be planted next to one another. The trees can be kept down to a height of 1.8-2.4m (6ft-8ft) and should be spaced 4.5m (15ft) apart.
Trees are available from late November to late March.
We have now stopped taking orders for bare-rooted cobnuts and filberts for delivery this season. We will shortly be listing the varieties that we will have available to order for delivery late November/December 2017.
