1 Year Old Bareroot Seedling

‘Grade B’ plants are smaller seedlings that finished the season a bit undersized to be considered ready for field planting for many folks. They are healthy and alive, but a bit small (usually less than 8") and able to get lost in the weeds quickly. They can be field planted to their final homes if you are on top of  watering, mulching, and weeding. We recommend  planting them in a home nursery bed to grow for one full season, develop much larger root systems and be very ready for tougher conditions and less care next year. This is an affordable and sensible way to start small so you can go big with your plantings.

The Trazel Hazelnut is a unique hazel variety with genetic heritage from Eurasia that grows great in our temperate climate. The seed source for our trees is from the famous ‘Faroka' progeny bred by Jack Gellatly. 'Faroka' and its offspring are reportedly resistant to filbert blight and bud mite. The nuts range from medium to large size, usually oval with good nut qualities. This tree form hazel grows in a pyramidal form and might be one of the best climbing trees we know of. The Turkish hazel certainly stands out as a rarity and has the ability pollinate other types hazelnuts as well. Great for wildlife too, feeding all types of birds, small mammals and bears.
