View all Hazel plants

The fluffy catkins found on a Hazel plant are about the length of its bare twigs. These are partnered with insignificant, white flowers, and big, soft, hairy, deep-green leaves- that soon turn into a rich orange colour during the Autumn. All these features attract many different species of insects, and a few animals, too.

Aside from all this, the plant also produces delicious, edible nuts! If you are wanting to harvest some of these, you must ensure that some catkins and flowers are retained when trimming in March. The nuts will then be ripe and ready by September/October when the squirrels harvest them.

When your Hazel Bare Root plant arrives, you will need to plant it as soon as you can (within 2 days)- do not let the roots dry out.

This 40/60cm bare root Hazel plant is fast-growing and can exceed 5m tall when planted in good conditions.

Hazel hedging can reach an ultimate height of 12m but is best kept at 5m high for ease of maintenance. The plant will tolerate windy, shady, and exposed sites.

  • Ideal height: 5m+ Tall
  • Soil type: Normal, clay, chalk

Make sure that as soon as you receive your Hazel Bare Root plant, that you dunk it into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet when planted. Ensure you continually water the plant throughout its growing season, too.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
