Spring 2014 - pot-grown fruit treesPot-grown fruit trees are now available, and can be planted out over Easter and throughout April and May. 

Hazel pollination

Hazel catkins

All hazel varieties are effectively self-sterile so you should always plant at least two different varieties. The following table shows which varieties will pollinate.

Start in the first column and find the variety you wish to plant. Then note the varieties in the subsequent columns which will pollinate it. Pollination is not necessarily 2-way, so repeat the process for each variety you intend to plant.

Remember that most hazels we supply will also be pollinated by wild hazels which you may already have in your area.

Hazels are wind-pollinated and the pollinator should be no more than 50m away.
