Hazel is a pretty shrub or small tree, native to Ireland. It has shiny, almost metallic bark, long catkins in spring and large, rounded green leaves which turn bright yellow in autumn. Considered by the Celts to be the plant of knowledge, it produces a crop of edible hazelnuts, and was traditionally coppiced (cut to the ground on a regualr basis) to produce 'rods' or poles, and also for charcoal production. Plant as an understorey in a woodland, in a mixed hedgerow or in a grove in sun or in shade. It prefers alkaline soil, so not suitable for peaty or boggy areas.

  • Bare root plants.
  • 60 - 90 cms tall.
