How to grow

Cosford is easy to grow and requires little attention. It needs a pollination partner - in a suburban or rural environment there may be other hazel trees nearby - any wild hazel tree or bush within about 50m should be suitable. If in doubt then Gunslebert is a good choice, and this will encourage better cropping, which can be a bit light.

Cosford is a good pollinator for other hazel nut varieties, because it produces lots of catkins and pollen over a long period.
