HAVE TWO HAZELNUT TREES THAT PRODUCE NO NUTS

You need to have two different cultivars spaced fifteen feet apart for good nut production. They will bear nuts the third or four year after planting. In order to maintain good nut production, you need to remove all suckers from the base.

Try an Edmonton site www.holesonline.com They sell beaked and American hazelnut trees at $25 per 21 cm height.

I have a lot of many hazels and hybrid hazels for better nut size. Depending were we are (cold or no) there are hazels for any zone. But, growing beaked or pure american is not a big deale. We may try some hybrid even is zone 4... Any way, the 2 hazels may also bloom well to set nuts after. Flowers are separate but present in the same tree. If no fruit set, exist incompatibility with some species. I have some small hardy hybrid hazel(zone 4) to sell $ 5-6.00 and large turquie x avellana (zone 5) at $15. ch.

if all have both sexes,and having more than one variety is the answer to nut production, then where are the catkins? i have no idea of the variety i have, but i really thought i was looking for a boy as there are no catkins out of three trees. i also wonder how far i can wander from hazlenut for cross fertilization purposes. could i plant a contorted, a purple, or say witch hazel to do the trick, or just more hazlenuts?

In a lot of cases having two trees is not the answer if both of them are pollinators. There are a couple of varities that are used as such and if they are both these varities then no nuts will be formed no matter how hard you pray. Here are four varities that should give you good results: Butler, Royal, Barcalone and Devianna. As far as I know there are no male and female plants as they all produce catkins. If your has not then it is due to either frost damage at set in the spring or die back on the tips during winter. Most good nurseries or garden centers should sell them and here we have five or six varities we sell.

THANKS FOR VARIETY LIST. MY 3 TREES GREW FROM NUTS PLANTED IN MY GARDEN BY SQUIRRELS. THEY ARE FULLY 5 YEARS OLD AND 5-7 FEET HIGH. THEY ARE IN A COPSE AND HAVE DEVELOPED WELL, NEVER HAVING DIE BACK OR DAMAGE FROM FROST. PERHAPS THEY ARE JUST NOT OLD ENOUGH TO PRODUCE CATKINS BUT THEY SEEM LIKE THEY SHOULD. I CAN PRESUME IF THEY WERE TO PRODUCE CATKINS THEY MAY NOT SET FRUIT BEING PROBABLY THE SAME VARIETY?
