Growing Calendar for Hazelnut Webb's Prize-Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Hazelnut Webb’s Prize is a native deciduous English hazelnut, it is very quick and easy to grow. It readily produces a reliable crop of large clusters of delicious nuts. It is classified as a cobnut rather than a filbert which is another type of hazelnut. For best results two or more different hazelnut cultivars should be planted near each other.
By late winter the catkins on the tree will be sending little amounts of pollen into the air. This is the best time to prune the tree as it allows pollen to fall on to the red female flowers of the tree. The tree should be pruned between January and March, this is done by removing some of the older and thicker branches out at the base of tree.
It is time to harvest the nuts when ruffled jackets start to turn yellow. You should aim to pick the fruits on a dry day when the husks are just about turning yellow. Both varieties, cobnuts and filberts will both grow in shade, but they fruit much better in good lighting so it is important to plant the tree in an open position.

Years until fruiting from planting: 2-4
Age of tree at despatch: 2

Most of our trees are delivered as bare rooted specimens with approximate height of: 3.5ft - 5ft / 105cm - 140cm depending on the variety.
In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.
The vast majority of the trees we ship have been pruned and will appear trimmed.
The trees were securely packaged in a sturdy box, delivered upright. Inside, they were securely bagged with a good supply of water to keep them going for a few more days. I was impressed with the size of the trees at 4' each and well established. I had hoped for planting instructions but managed to find this online.
