CORYLUS (HAZEL) as a Hedgeplant
Corylus avellana (hazel or cobnut), up to 10 ft., with its well-known “lamb’s tails” (catkins) in mid-winter, is an excellent plant for a mixed hedge. Tolerates a wide range of soils and situations. Used alone, it makes an attractive summer hedge but should be limited to about 7 ft. in height. Clip in February or March as soon as the catkins have started to shrivel. Plant from October to March, 1-1/2 ft. apart.
