Cobnuts and filberts are both similar types of hazelnut. Easy to grow, they are both productive and ornamental and take up little room in the garden. The catkins provide some late winter cheer to the garden. Two varieties should be planted next to one another to ensure cross-pollination. The nuts are usually eaten ‘green’ in September when they are succulent with a delicate flavour. They can also be collected for winter storage and are delicious roasted. Trees are supplied in 3 litre pots and are approximately 90-120cm (3-4ft) tall on despatch. Pot grown cobnut and filbert bushes are available for despatch throughout the year.
For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
