Hazel Hedge Plants Description

Hazel has distinctive pale yellow fluffy catkins known as lambs tails appear from January to March and hang along the length of the bare twigs, not just at the ends. The catkins are accompanied by less noticeable flowers and it is important to retain some of both when trimming (in March) if the edible nuts are required. The nuts are fully ripe by about September/October, when they are harvested by squirrels. See our range of edible hedging Plants.

The leaves are soft, slightly hairy, large and rounded with a pointed tip and turn an attractive orange/gold leaves in autumn. Its a bushy multi-stemmed plant and the young stems are useful as stakes/pea sticks. Include Hazel amongst a veriety of native plants to create an eye-catching feature full of diverse shapes, colours and textures.

Hazel supports at least 70 species of insects plus moth caterpillars, dormice, deer and squirrels. It is fine in most free draining soils and windy/exposed sites and is shade tolerant - view a number of hedging for exposed sites. Hazel grows by about 45cm pa.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Brutting or breaking sideshoots half way along their length in August followed by shortening the brutted shoots to 3-4 buds when the catkins are shedding pollen in late winter. When necessary remove up to one third of old overcrowded shoots to the main branches.
