Description

A popular filbert variety dating from around 1816, 'Cosford' produces good yields of large nuts as well as being an excellent pollinator for other trees. Like other filbert varieties, it’s slightly larger and more elongated than cobnuts, with a long husk or beard. The nuts are well-flavoured, easy to crack and can be eaten green in September or stored for winter use.

Maximum height & spread: 400cm (157").

How to Grow
Choose a sheltered position on moist, well drained soil in sun or light shade. Prior to planting Hazelnut trees, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and water well to settle the soil. To ensure pollination, it is best to grow hazelnuts in groups of two or more cultivars.
More Info

Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. Water young trees during particularly dry periods until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.

Hazelnuts are usually grown as open centred bushes on a short main stem of about 45cm (18"). Prune Hazelnut stems back by half immediately after planting. Select 3 or 4 laterals to form a main framework and remove all other laterals that are not required. In following years repeat this process each February until an open framework of 6 to 8 strong branches has been achieved. Once the main framework has been created Hazelnuts can be pruned each February while the plant is in flower to help disperse pollen for an improved crop. Prune the strongest leaders back by half and reduce the strongest laterals to 3 or 4 buds.
