Hi Serena Just to let you know that my plants have arrived and to thank you for taking such care with them - they were so well packed and are in such good condition. I am very impressed because I have bought plants online in the past and they were nowhere near as well packed - or as well grown! Kind regards

Supplied as a containerised tree pruned to approximately 2 - 3 feet (60 - 90 cm) tall including pot.Available from approximately mid June 2013.
The true 'native' filbert or cobnut of Kent - and, in our opinion still the best flavoured. The large nuts are long and slightly flattened in shape and carried in generous clusters.
Picked and eaten green their flavour is truly sublime - or for a real treat make cobnut pesto! Left to ripen, their sweetness really comes into its own - making for a lovely addition to the nut bowl or cakes and pastries.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
