Hazel Plants - Planting Instructions

Sowing Time

  • Bare root hedging is planted in the dormant season - October to March
  • Avoid frosty conditions, where the ground is frozen

Trench Preparation

  • Dig trench approx. 2ft wide & 2ft deep
  • It is recommended that you add farm yard manure to base of the trench
  • Lightly cover the manure with a layer of soil

Positioning Plants

  • Space plants 30cm apart
  • Stagger planting positions for a denser hedge
  • When planting - hold plants at ground level & back fill the top soil
  • Ensure each plant is straight & soil is compacted in around it's root ball
  • Level off the soil around the plants

Handling the Plants

  • Watering is essential - Both before & after planting
  • When plants arrive, plant them straight away
  • If you are unable to plant straight away - then 'heel them in' temporarily
  • Keep plant's roots in their bag & avoid exposure to sun light
  • Take care not to damage roots, bark & buds

After Care

  • Water bare roots plants regularly until plants establish
  • Water before & after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young hedge
  • A new hedge will need to be weeded at least 3 time over the growing season
    • Weed in March, June & September
    • We recommend using weed membrane & mulch to control weeds


  • Hazel is pruned back hard every few years
  • Prune all stems down to ground level
  • This encourages vigorous growth of new stems
  • This will result in a hazel plant up to 2m in width

Hazel - Quick Facts

  • Nuts appear in September & can be harvested from then onwards
  • They are a food source for mice, pigeons, pheasants & squirrels
  • A hazel plant can support up to 73 different insect species
  • Hazel is one of the most common plants found in woodlands & hedgerows
  • One hazel tree cannot pollinate itself, so you would need two plants growing together to get nuts in Autumn

Apologies for not responding sooner. Received Hazel plants promptly, much appreciated
Excellent plants and delivery. Many thanks.
It is a bit early to say how the fruits are going to be. We bought several of them and they all settled well and now start burgeoning. Now we just have to wait.
Delivery was quick.

Plans had plenty of buds on then. They were higher than expected.
Happy with the order from The Garden Shop.
Excellent transaction with healthy plants and good delivery.
Ordered 5 plants about 2 feet tall as described, the Hazel sticks looked extremely healthy, looking forward to seeing how they grow
Very happy with saplings, packaging and delivery. I will use this site again.
