A close relation to Hazels and Cob nuts, the Filbert is generally larger and tastier than both. 'Cosford' is a reliable variety producing filbert nuts with a long husk or beard. The nuts can be eaten green when they have a delicate flavour or stored through the winter. A pollinator is required, another variety of filbert, any hazelnut or cob will pollinate, even the native hazel ‘Corylus avellana’ is a suitable pollinator and is often found in native hedgerows.

'Cosford' wiill tolerate some shade and grows well on any well drained soil out of exposure. Attractive catkins provide winter interest. View all edible nut trees.

Planting Advice for Corylus avellana 'Cosford'

Our pot grown Filbert trees can be planted at any time of year. Firstly, remove weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting site. Dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and twice as wide. To help your tree establish more effectively, especially if you have poor soil, sprinkle root grow in the hole.

Gently loosen the tree roots and place into the planting hole. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently, avoiding banking the soil up around the collar of the tree. We recommend planting with a stake and tie and if your area is prone to rabbits, a rabbit hard. For information on using these, see our detailed planting guide.
