Hi, I am located in West Wicklow. I wonder does anyone here know where there is an abundance of Hazel trees. Maybe a forest. Where is the best place to locate them? I see there are few here and there along the hedges.
I am looking fo a couple of sticks for my veggie garden and maybe some nuts for next year.
If I did cut a couple from the bottom I take it this is similar to pruning and the will grow back quickly?
Could I use willow? Al I never see this or else don't know what to look for.
Thank you for any help.
Paul

Loads of Hazel in the Burren.

Bit far from Wicklow, though.

It loves alkaline soil but it'll take a good few years for it to produce nuts.
