The Hazelnut Saplings are looking great as they continue to grow on their first year.
Root production on a Hazelnut tree’s first year is it’s main focus. The next fallowing year will be height, making more branches, etc.
When I come back from the work exchange Dairy Goat Farm, I will transfer the Hazelnut Saplings into their own rather large individual pots. If I do not see leaves emerged from the two currently budding saplings; I will wait until they are all “wide awake” and ready for taking in much needed sunshine from their new fully developed leaves.
