Cobs and Filberts (Corylus avellana and maxima)
Hazels have been cultivated since classical times, and the Tudors are recorded to have been enthusiastic cultivators of Filberts. Although cobnuts are particularly associated with Kent, they have been grown across the country for as long as records exist. Cobs and Filberts have attractive catkins in winter and, of course, edible nuts. The cob and filbert varieties we sell are self fertile.

We donate half of our profit from sales of cobs and filberts to Common Ground
All our cob and filbert bushes are bare root. At the height of the lifting season - between November and March - there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for cobs and filberts from March to September are confirmed in late October/ early November ready for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.
