My wife bought a Curly Hazel a few years ago. It remained in a large pot on the patio for a year or two and we then planted it out. It lost its “curls” and all branches grow skywards. Last year, in its 2nd year out, we were surprised with 8 delicious nuts. It is now displaying masses of catkins. Is this early? It stands about 5 feet wide, a few branches have reached 9 feet high and I wish to halt its skyward climb at some point. Any advice please? I don’t wish to mutilate it.
