If you have an interest in plants that also produce food, like fruit trees and bushes, then you’ll love this tutorial. Growing hazelnuts isn’t something that many people consider, but the bushes provide a beautifully landscape piece as well as producing a delicious nut. And, by following this guide, you’ll find that growing, harvesting, and roasting hazelnuts isn’t as hard as many people think.
The tutorial starts out by explaining the different ways you can propagate hazelnuts. If you already have hazelnut plants on your property, this won’t be an issue. But if you want to move hazelnuts to your property, you can do so by starting with brand new plants or by taking cuttings from existing bushes. Both ways will need a little bit of time before you’ll be able to harvest any hazelnuts, but the investment will definitely pay off in the long run.
Next, the tutorial goes in to how you will take care of your plants after you have them on your property. While you shouldn’t expect harvests for several years, you’ll still need to do some upkeep while they grow. The guide also provides very clear pictures, so if you’re more of a visual person, you can follow along easily.
