Our Feedback
Hello, I received my gooseberry bush and some Lily of the Valley plants this afternoon. I only placed the order over the weekend, your service is amazing and the plants arrived in good condition (not surprising given the packaging!!) they are already planted and watered well. I can't wait for November and the rest of my order, ever so glad I found your site. Look forward to buying from you again. Thanks, Anne p.s. your shredded paper as a mulch is inspired.

Pollinator Friendly

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.

  • Vigorous in habit and heavy cropping.
  • Whilst this variety can be grown as a single tree they are best grown in groups.Consider growing them as hedge or shelter belt to your veg plot; and don't forget the 'prunings' will provide a valuable source of hazel poles and supports for the veg garden.
  • For use as a hedging plant, plant 3 feet (90 cm) apart.
  • Wind pollinated.
  • Self Sterile.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
