A tree-like shrub that has elegant, golden-yellow catkins in late winter, followed by mid-green, heart-shaped leaves. The delicious, edible nuts that follow will ripen in mid-August. This variety needs a sunny garden for the large hazel nuts to ripen. Garden care: Prune dead, diseased and damaged wood in March and apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant. Suckers should be removed from the base of the plant as soon as they appear.
