IN CELTIC MYTHOLOGY THE ENCHANTING HAZEL TREE SYMBOLISES WISDOM, FAITH AND INSPIRATION.
This beautifully wrapped Hazel tree’s catkins blossom with dainty yellow flowers in spring. Its edible hazelnuts ripen every autumn and can be eaten straight from the tree. It will happily thrive in any garden and is wonderful for wildlife, especially our bees and garden birds.
When you place your order, a young Hazel tree will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners here, before being carefully wrapped and placed in its luxury parcel.
An exclusively designed card with your personal message, the story of your tree's ancient symbolism and a full care guide is also enclosed with your gift. Add an engraved brass plaque (see images above) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.
Psst! You can make your own nutella from the hazelnuts too.
Caring for your tree
Every tree is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your Hazel tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. These little beads of goodness will release into the soil for the next 9 months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your tree, still in its organic pot, in a large flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away) or in a sunny spot in the garden.
This Hazel tree is 50-60cm high, it is quite happy to be lightly pruned in early spring and will reach a height of 2 metres in 5 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
