Corylus Maxima Hedging

The Filbert Hazelnut tree, Corylus maxima, also known as a Kentish Cobnut, provides bigger, meatier nuts than wild Hazel. These nuts are a staple food for squirrels, hedgehogs and mice, as well as humans, so be prepared to protect your crop! It can be used in a mixed hedge if you like, although we think that Common Hazel is better value for this purpose. Filbert Hazelnut trees will reach about 10 metres tall.

You can also buy Purple Filberts from our nut tree range. Alternatively, view our selection of native hedging or see our full range of hedging plants.

Filbert plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).

Spacing a Filbert Hazelnut hedge:

Filberts can be added to a mixed hedge: they are good hedging plants, but Common Hazel is cheaper & because you will be clipping your hedge, you won't get very many nuts. 

History & uses of Corylus maxima: 

The original Filberts were from Turkey and the Balkans, but since their introduction in the 1750's they have been extensively inter-bred with our native hazel trees. Filberts are grown commercially for the best hazelnuts, but the hazels in cheaper packets of mixed nuts are usually from Common Hazel. The name Filbert probably comes from the 7th century Norman Saint Philibert of Jumiges. His feast day is on the 20th of August, about the time that the first Filbert nuts are ready to eat.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
