The Hazel (Corylus avellana) tree is a very common hedgrow and woodland plant. The Hazel or Cobnut tree is a small sized bushy tree reaching up to 12m. Attractive leaves and popular for its Easter catkins. Produces an edible kernel. A perfect tree for coppicing and as a supply of fuel for sustainable burning. In folklore the hazel is often found at the border between the worlds where magical things may be found. The Celts believed hazel nuts gave wisdom and inspiration.
The current height of these trees is approximately 30-50cm and they can be planted out all year round. Each Wedding Favour consists of a single Hazel tree packed into a black drawstring bag then into a presentation eco friendly cotton bag.
