Planting Care

Planting & Care for Trees - Hazelnut Trees

Preparation
  • While hazelnuts grow in any well-draining moist soil, they prefer an acid soil amended with compost or other organic matter.
  • The trees thrive in sun or shade, often growing along streams and on damp rocky hillsides. 
  • Planted as an individual tree or a hedge, the hazelnut will grow into a 10- to 15-foot-tall and equally wide shrub-like tree.
  • Hazelnuts are shrubby trees, growing into thickets from suckers growing up from the roots.
Opening Plant Material
  • B&B - Soak root ball very well.
  • Each type of plant has an illustration on how to plant if you scroll down and click on the orange rectangular box “Handling & Plant Guidelines”.
Planting B&B trees
  • Plant B&B trees in spring or fall. A good indicator if you can still plant is if the ground is still workable you’re good to go. If a hard frost is expected be sure to hold off on planting.
  • Dig a hole at least 6" wider and no deeper than the size of the ball on the plant. Rotate the plant to the proper position. Never lift or move trees by the tops.
  • Notice where the base of the trunk flairs out from the tree. This is called the root flair. This root flair should show when the tree is planted. If necessary, add soil under the ball so the root flair is exposed.
  • Place fertilizer packets into the bottom of the hole (if purchased). *Use Our Recommended Fertilizer
  • Backfill ½ of the hole with soil and completely saturate the soil with water.
  • Once the tree is straight and located as desired, cut and remove twine. Then, remove or bend back top ? of metal basket. Lastly, remove exposed burlap from top of ball
  • Fill the hole to the top of the ball with soil, then soak well with water and let settle.
  • The top of the root ball should be visible and slightly higher than the soil around it.
  • Add mulch on top of soil making sure to not put mulch against the trunk or stems.
  • See our link below “Handling & Planting Guidelines” for illustrations on planting.
Pruning - After Planting
  • B&B - Although it is not essential for B&B to be pruned after planting, a light pruning for shape, to remove any broken branches from shipping, or to thin out a heavily branched plant will help in the transplanting process and in the appearance of your new planting.
Pruning - Through-out the Season
  • While the native hazelnuts may be pruned to a tree form, generally gardeners maintain them as a large shrub, pruning after the leaves drop and the trees go dormant in the fall.
  • Thinning the crowded interior branches helps promote air circulation within the tree, reducing the incidence of mildew and fungal diseases.
  • The suckers growing around the base of the tree may be cut off at ground level with anvil pruners or loppers, or harvested by cutting through the connecting root with a spade and carefully transplanted to a new location.
Watering - After Planting
  • Plants typically take approximately 6 weeks to establish new roots in your soil. During this period, water plants as often as every 2-4 days at the start and at least a minimum of once per week.
  • Beyond the 6 week establishment period, water once per week, unless rains occur.
  • Stick your finger into the soil around 3” to check soil moisture.
Watering - Through-out the Season
  • After the first season, plants should only be watered during extended periods without rain.
  • How do you know if your plants need water? The easiest way to tell is to touch the soil around the roots. If it is moist, there is no need to water. If it is dry, give it a good soaking with the hose end (no nozzle) watering the soil only, not the leaves.
  • Stick your finger into the soil around 3” to check soil moisture.

Planting & Handling Help

Download our Planting and Handling Guide below to plan for a successful arrival and install of your plants. Be sure to water all plants as soon as they arrive and every day until you’re ready to plant. Keep any bare root bundles in a shady, cool spot with the roots covered at all times.
