Pollination Information

Pollination of American Hazelnut Tree (Corylus americana):

Corylus Americana is a self-incompatible species, which means that it requires cross-pollination from another cultivar in order to produce nuts.

The American Hazelnut produces both male and female flowers on the same plant. The male flowers, which are yellow and appear in clusters before the leaves in the spring, produce the pollen. The female flowers, which are small and inconspicuous, are receptive to the pollen and are responsible for nut production. The nuts are encased in a prickly husk.

The cultivars of Corylus Americana have different pollination requirements, some are self-fertile, but most of them need another cultivar for pollination, The most common pollinator for the American hazelnut cultivars is 'Barcelona' which is considered a good pollinator for most cultivars.

It is important to note that different cultivars bloom at different times, so if you want to ensure successful pollination, it's best to plant cultivars that bloom at the same time.

Fertilization

Fertilization

It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
