Hazel (Corylus avellana) is a deciduous plant bearing pendulous pale yellow catkins in the spring before the new leaves emerge.
The fresh new leaves of the Hazel are lime green, turning to mid green in the summer and yellow in the autumn. The Hazel produces a nut also known as a cobnut.
The stems of Hazel hedging plants can be coppiced and have been used traditionally for hurdle making amongst other things.
Hazel hedge plants are also a valuable addition to a native farm hedging mix. Mixed hedgerows are excellent for attracting birds and other wildlife as hedges play host to insects, berries and other sources of food for wildlife. Native mixed hedges also offer some winter protection for wildlife.
Hazel is tolerant of most soils and can be planted as part of a mixed hedgerow.
