The green foliage of Corylus avellana is rounded and slightly hairy with a pointed tip, turning lovely shades of orange and yellow in the autumn before falling.

All brown and dead. Planting and watering didn’t revive them

This was recommended to plant with Hornbeam. It would be useful to provide more non-thorny alternatives to co-plant for fruit and nuts.
