A beautiful hazel tree to plant in celebration of one of life’s most important and joyful responsibilities.
A handsome young hazel tree will be hand-packed and delivered in a beautiful wooden crate, alongside a slate marker engraved with the name of the godfather and the name and birth of the baby.
As the little one grows tall and strong this beautiful, bushy tree will bear elegant golden catkins through spring followed by a harvest of delicious nuts in autumn.
A fitting gift for those who nurture and protect, Corylus from the Greek korys, means ‘helmet’ which describes the distinctive shape of the husk and explains the tree’s association with protection. There is a well-established tradition of bringing branches of hazel into homes to protect against thunder and lightning, and on ocean voyages to guard against shipwreck.
We provide full care and cultivation instructions.
PLEASE NOTE: We always deliver a healthy specimen which will grow vigorously. Each tree will vary in size and shape depending on the time of year and availability.
Contact us directly for more information about how plants appear at present.
The tree may eventually grow to around 8m and will require a medium sized garden to thrive.
Your gift is beautifully hand-packed to order in London. The tree will be carefully cocooned in wood wool inside one of our unique crates, crafted from sustainable wood.
Slate comes in the format seen in the photo.
Each crate is packed the day of dispatch, and delivered to any UK address on the date of your choice. The beautifully presented gift may be delivered direct to the recipient with your own gift message, attached to the crate on a gift card.
The beautiful wooden gift crate measures: 70 x 16 x 16cm
Personalised slate plaque measures 16.5cm x 3cm
