Filbert Nut Trees

If you are going to plant a tree or bush, then it is going to be there for many years. It's well worth spending some time looking at the different varieties and going for one that will be productive and providing you with a good crop in years to come.

Time spent to prepare the ground properly will repay you many times over. Don't forget to stake the tree for the first few years and protect against rabbits.

 

Purple Filbert

Not only will the Purple Filbert give you a good autumnal crop of moist, flavoursome nuts, it's so attractive, with its rich copper foliage, deep purple catkins and purple fruit, that it deserves a spot in every garden. If you have the room, it would make an interesting and productive hedge. Supplied 60-70cm high (24-28") high.
