I have a Barcelona Filbert Tree & needed a pollinator for it. I also heard your company is one of the best to order from.

What is the best soil for Filberts? Soil here is clay loam, somewhat rocky and very little organic matter. Should I do anything to improve that as in--adding compost, for example?
YankeeMaid on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Filberts (or hazelnuts) prefer a reasonably fertile soil with good soil moisture, but adequate drainage. Your soil has a number of issues and will definitely need some amending if you want your tree to grow and produce well. Compost is always a good addition, as is well-rotted manure or coco-fiber (you can read about that here:

It improves all types of soil, especially heavy clay, and will give your tree the drainage it needs.

Doing suprisingly well!
While my Southern VT Climate is marginal for this variety, I have had good luck with the Casina variety from previous years, so am looking forward to the same with the additional Casina's I received this year. I would definitely recommend some attention to detail on this variety in terms of sun burn protection measures for the first year (at least).

Casina Filbert Hazelnut
Tree arrived healthy. I planted it and it is thriving. It is as if it did not go though any transplant shock at all. I want to buy more varieties from Stark Bros.

Grows great in WV Potomac Highlands
We grow fruit and nut trees here to produce RADA Brand Appalachian Spirits. The Casina Filbert thrives well here and we'll use the nuts for "Filbertino"

I bought 4 different filbert trees. At this point I don't know which ones are which. All are vigorous and healthy. Even set catkins the first year. I am a firm believer in buying grafted stock.

These trees arrived in suspended animation but as expected, sprouted and have been growing slowly pest-free in the front of my home. Wondering when they will be old enough to have nuts !

Casina Filbert
It came as a nice looking tree, well packaged, nice size and lots of root tissue. After planting it pushed out new growth but after about 6-8 weeks the new tissue collapsed. I kept it overwinter to see if it would through a shoot up from the roots -- nothing. the other filbert it purchased at the same time (Barcelona) is doing wonderfully. I am unsure what went wrong. the Casina is a seedling tree. the Barcelona is a grafted tree. The rootstock of the Barcelona might be more suitable for my environment?
