Precocious Hazelnut Seeds

Dormancy applied Jan. 1st. Just plant and grow. Seeds selected from my most precocious hybrid plants developed over the course of 30 years with heavy lateral bearing. The nuts from Precocious combine the Ken's select hazels which are from what would be considered 'over producers' which means the yields can weigh the plants canes to the ground. Every year for the last 40 years further refinements were done to improve this from seed strain. The nut size shrunk but making up for it in terms of yields and immunity to eastern filbert blight.

Uncovering the Beauty Within

Finding the right piece of wood to create a work of art is sometimes challenging. Chestnut wood naturally brings out the best of this inner world with its expressive grain patterns and ease of transformation. The inventory is currently being sanded and trimmed. Dimensional lumber will vary from 6 inches to 10 inches in width from 2 to 4 ft. in length and one inch in width.
