Funny thing is, that I have a Henry Lauder's Walking Stick bought 
from a nursery ~8 years ago.  It's rootstock, a normal filbert of 
some type Suckers like MAD.  I'd prefer Suckers that were "walking 
stick".

If I wanted to root Filbert cuttings, what time of year, etc, are 
best for rooting?

Thanks,
