Corylus avellana 'Scooter' is a small, compact, rounded, deciduous shrub with distinctive twisted, “corkscrew” branches and round, curled, green leaves that turn pale yellow in autumn. Long, yellow catkins hang from bare branches in late winter and early spring. Corylus avellana 'Scooter' can tolerate most soil types, but grows best in fertile, slightly alkaline, moist, well-drained soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade. It is very resistant to frost and tolerant of exposed conditions, as well as urban pollution. Very easy to grow, low maintenance plant that doesn’t require pruning. Dwarf Corkscrew Hazel Scooter, with its attractive twisted branches, spring catkins, and autumn colour, is a great ornamental tree, perfect as a specimen or accent plant in small informal, cottage, urban, and wildlife gardens. Excellent for Japanese-style and rock and gravel gardens. It is great for beds and borders or informal, low hedges and screens. Very suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
