A guide to choosing the right size

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready. 

Any Bare Root Items - Availability means Available for supply from Nov to April.

Any Container grown items - Availability means Available for supply now. 

Cobnuts are largely self sterile - the pollen from a given variety cannot pollinate the same variety. If you live in the countryside where there are plenty of wild hazels nearby, then these will probably pollinate your trees.

Bare Root = Field grown trees that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
7.5 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.
2 Year Bush = A two year old tree that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally trees will be 150-175cm in height with multiple side branches.

situation

Cobnut trees are hardy and grow well on a wide range of soils except those that are waterlogged, but like all plants they grow best in soil conditions that suit them.

They prefer a good friable topsoil overlying a free draining substrate. A soil that is too fertile will tend to produce trees with excessive vigour, which will not crop well. However, it is still possible to grow reasonably sized and cropping trees on stony ground as long as there is sufficient soil and good drainage.

A neutral to alkaline soil is ideal, but cobnuts also grow well in more acid soils.

delivery charges

Collection - If you would like to collect your trees then use this option. Note the collection is from the Wholesale Nursery office between Monday-Friday only. Please allow 1 working days for your order to be processed prior to collection date.

We are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.30. Our plants are grown in fields that can be 2 miles away from our office so it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.

Delivery Charges - The delivery charge is worked out from the weight and the size of the plant. We have several rates that apply to UK mainland addresses. A delivery charge of £8.50 is for all single tree orders. £10.00 if more than one tree except in the case of the Espalier and Fan trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00. The lower postal rates range from £2.80 - £5.70, will be applied to smaller orders of the lighter plants like currants, raspberries, gooseberries, blackberries, asparagus and strawberries although larger orders will go into the £10.00 rate. Once you have put together your order the delivery charge will show before payment. All orders are despatched in one delivery.

To take advantage of a promotional code or gift voucher this must be entered into the redeem code box at the checkout. Discounts cannot be given once an order is completed and any codes have not been used.

Kent Cob

Nut Trees | Genus Corylus | Corylus avellana

Hazel Kent Cob - Long and flat, the largest and best flavoured of the cultivated nuts. Must have cross pollination to produce the best crops but will set a crop on its own. Plant 2 metres apart. We offer trees inoculated with the Summer truffle (Tuber aestivum var. uncinatum) which is completely suited to the UK climate. Our trees are of very high quality and with their certificates make ideal gifts. Why just have nuts when you can have Truffles as well !

Thank you very much for completing th order for fruit and Cob trees so quickly! I was very impressed that it was ready in less than 24 hours and the collection and packaging was very easy with help in loading, too. I strongly recommend that you put an article in "Life" magazine.

The Blackmore site is clear and easy to use, with plenty of information to assist and a range of useful testimonials from previous customers. Care is needed to ensure you have clicked 'use this address' more than once when purchasing for delivery at another address. The 'how to' videos are a great idea providing visual confirmation of techniques which can be easier for those who find small print difficult to read. It was lovely to be able to add a message for the recipient as this is a gift - other companies suggest their products as gifts but don't enable this personal touch.
