Andreas R on Jul 14, 2017

Good sized filbert stock.
Received an additional batch of young Royals this spring to add to those received and planted in the previous two years. As always, this spring's offerings are good sized trees with a good root structure, so I expect similar results to what I have seen in previous years. This variety can be a slow starter here in VT but they really catch hold in the second year. If you have Japanese beetles in your area be sure to keep them sprayed to prevent defoliation.

In it's second season.
So far this little tree is doing beautifully. It has rooted very well, and leafed out. It has grown out several inches in the year it has been in the ground. I've had no problems with it at all. Am looking forward to plenty of filberts in the coming years!

Two plants
One excellent, well branched, the second a stick with a few small branches at the top. They formed catkins in the Fall, which were killed during the Winter. Nothing productive to report, they are alive

A surprisingly nice tree/bush.
I didn't expect much, as the bare root was very sparsely populated, a single root almost as large as the tree stem, maybe 8 inches long. After an extra long and wintery winter, it is doing great. Lots of leaves and some secondary limb action already. I also planted another type of hazelnut for a pollinater, which had a great root and did not survive, which was replaced by Stark Bros no questions asked. Very pleased.
