I have never planted a fresh filbert. I save and give away many seed to
friends. I myself have done as Lucky has with store bought seed of good
sizes. I also soaked seed for up to a good week because of the hard shell. I
have had very good success.

I've planted hazlenuts and you MUST plant them fresh - if they dry out they
are no good. If you leave them in an unheated greenhouse, it's better if it
doesn't freeze inside. It's common for them to germinate and send down a
root in the fall, then emerge in spring. But if the soil in the pot freezes
it can damage the root. Also, be sure no rodents can get to them, or you
may find little holes with tiny footprints around them, and no nut left.
Otherwise, put them into stratification immediately, in the refrigerator,
and plant them in spring.

Subject: [NAFEX] germinating hazelnut from seed..
Has anyone had success planting freshly harvested hazelnuts in trays or
tubes & leaving them in
an unheated greenhouse for the winter? My son pointed out hazel that we had
forgotten to pick
last week & it turns out to have overly large (up to a third larger than the
majority of other
varieties I have) nuts. Unfortunately the rabbits ate that particular ID
tag so Im unclear
what it is, but I do know that the bush is about 3 years old & gave me about
a half gallon of
husked nuts. mIEKAL
