Quick question,

I just bought a contorted Hazel, which i have wanted for quite a while, do these ones also produce Hazel nuts? and if so should pollination be from another contorted hazel?

I have planted the first one in a semi shade position, and intend to keep it fairly need beside a pathway.

thanks

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the contorted hazel does not produce nuts. So no need to worry about pollination from another contorted hazel. Get your self the straight Corylus avellana for the nuts.

i had thought the contorted hazel can produce nuts, but usually doesn't, as it's usually planted as a single specimen, and would generally not have any other plants nearby?

Hello Barrema,
Twisted hazel query:-
Warning: this suckers very easily i.e. straight branches emerge from below soil level and are fairly difficult to remove. By the way I have 4 of them (6 years old approx. which you can have for free provided you don't mind a trip to Blackrock, Dundalk, and digging them up. My email is .... Exclamation email address removed by moderator for security, but sent by private message to barremic to keep lines of communication open Exclamation

Nearer is Tully's Nurseries www.tullynurseries.ie They are some 4 miles from Blake's Cross.

i think the suckering depends on what rootstock they are grafted onto. a lot would be grafted onto turkish hazel, which does not suffer from this problem, afaik.

I've had a contorted hazel for about five (years it's still really small). It once produced one hazelnut!
