HI Kate, another suggestion from our social media is also Corylus avellana another name for Hazel or possibly Corylus avellana 'Aurea' also known as Golden hazel. I hope that helps?

Corylus disease?

Question from Bob Kwitkin

In forum: Corylus avellana 'Contorta'

My Corylus avellana contorta seems to have the right side leaves turning brown and dying. What do you suggest I do to save the shrub? Spray? Prune?

I am thinking of planting Corylus avellana in soil that has a pH of 6.5.Do you think it will thrive?

Looks like a twisted (or contorted) hazel to me - aren't those hazelnuts in the first picture? (Corylus avellana?)

Hi Dawn,

Ants tend to be present if there is a food source for them, which on plants is usually honeydew, which is the sticky excretion of sap sucking insects such as aphids. Can you see any evidence of aphids on closer inspection? If so I’d recommend spraying the plant with soapy water to get rid of them.

The presence of aphids may fit in with the unhealthy leaves you are seeing, although this could also be as a result of conditions. Have you been feeding and watering the tree regularly? Plants in containers need more attention than those planted in the ground, so it’s important to do this regularly.

Hope this helps. Don’t forget to add to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care updates http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/corylus-avellana-contorta?referrer=%2Fplant%2Fsearch%3Fq%3DCorylus+avellana+Contorta%26amp%3Bsearch_submit_x%3D50%26amp%3Bsearch_submit_y%3D17

Corylus avellana Contorta

Question from Dawn Haynes

In forum: Corylus avellana 'Contorta'

I have recently purchased a Corylus avellana Contorta. It is about 3ft tall and I have it in a large container on my patio. I have noticed that the leaves are starting to go brown. Also the plant is covered in ants. I think there may be an ants nest in the container, although I did repot it and didn't notice any then. What is the best way to get rid of the ants without killing the plant and also are the leaves going brown anything to do with the ants. Thank you.

Corylus avellana

Reddish-brown nuts in a green husk are seen on hazel in the late summer and autumn; but these are generally eaten quickly by squirrels, woodpeckers, tits, nuthatches, mice or even dormice, which sometimes make their nests in hazel bushes.

Corylus avellana 'Contorta' is good alternative for Salix babylonica var. pekingensis 'Tortuosa' as it is slow growing. This one is also great for flower arranging.

Gravel and stone patio - weed propagation!

Question from Fi

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

The attached pic shows my (diy) patio, gravel and slate slabs which having built myself I am very proud of. It features an acer palmatum dissectum, corylus avellana contorta, black stemmed bamboo. Unwelcome visitors include herb robert, chickweed, grass, hardy geraniums which self seed hydroponically!
How best do I control the weed propagation without killing the wanted plants? And am I heading for problems with my choice of plants - gloomy friends tell me so, but I love them.
Many thanks.

Planting schemes

Message from Marissa Zoppellini

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Hi Maggie, what a lovely prospect! My general advice is to start off with a backbone of evergreen shrubs on your plan, which will provide year-round interest. Too much evergreen will be very static, so the fun will be in the seasonal interest - this does not always have to be flowers, it could be berries or interesting shapes or textures of plants, an example is Corylus avellana 'Contorta' which has twisted branches and is particularly sculptural after leaf-fall. Summer is usually the easiest season to satisfy, so I won't make any suggestions for that. There are many different Clematis that flower at different points in the year, C. cirrhosa 'Freckles' is evergreen and flowers in late winter to early spring, Hellebores are also lovely during this time. Lonicera fragrantissima is a deciduous shrub that has scented flowers on bare stems around the same time. Bulbs are good for injecting colour at different times of the year and annuals are great for filling in gaps whilst the permanent planting is maturing. Another tip is not to be too hasty in tidying up in autumn, seed-heads of some herbaceous perennials and grasses are very attractive through until spring and also provide a winter habitat for wildlife. The RHS encyclopedia of plants and flowers is a great book for planning as it is arranged by colour by season, also visits to gardens and nurseries at different times of the year give the opportunity to see the plants in season for real. I hope this is helpful and wish you a lot of pleasure in your venture, all the best Marissa
