Hi!! I live in Arkansas where the weather is pretty hot in the summer.
We also have a high content of clay in our soil and we have a hig
water table. From what I have read these conditions are hard on growin
Does anyone in here grown Hazelnuts in the south?? I need advice on ho
I can grow them here. I have planted them and they just up and died
This year I planted 5 of them and only 2 sprouted. Any ideas?
Hi Maryc! Yes, hazelnuts will grow great in Arkansas, or at least in
Johnson County, AR.
As a young boy I living in rural AR, I walked to catch the school bus
and there was a fence that ran beside the road. There were dozens of
hazelnut bushes along one stretch, I remember what a treat it was in
the fall, when the shuck of the hazelnut would turn brown and open.
I don't know where they came from, if they were native, or someone
planted them there, I do not recall anyone bringing up the subject.
I don't know about hazelnuts but many seeds require a cold period
before they will sprout. Try putting some in the freezer for about a
month, then try sprouting them
Sorry I could not be of more help- -Rogerx
Thanks so much for the information. It gives me hope. I did find
supplier online for them. It is a Hazelnut research company. I'm goin
to order more fot this spring. They sell the plants already sprouted
they call them tublings. The ones I planted before were in dorman
stage and they never came out of it.
Thanks again!! :)
Hi Bob, Your are right about the chinquapins, they were North American
Chestnuts. Unlike the hazelnut, their shuck had spines. During the
time period I was talking about (60+) years ago, Chinquapins thrived
in Arkansas too, however, a disease killed all of the known trees in
this part of Arkansas and I understand it also destroyed most of the
trees in the south and southwest.
Have a good day, Rogerx
I also have Chestnut trees in my yard but they are the variety that ar
not affected by the diseases. We have already harvested a few of them
My Husband loves them and he roasts them in the microwave in a towe
because they blow up and make a powder if they are not in the towel
I have two of them that are growing. I am going to order more for thi
next spring brom Baggersett. They are the ones that do the research o
Hazelnuts and Chestnuts. I think I may have more luck with their plant
so I'm going to try
