Hazelnut Runners?

Recently I noticed that my Finger Lakes Abundant hazelnut that was planted last year has been pushing out runners. I didn’t realize Hazelnuts did this - do all varieties? I assume I can start new trees from these but when is the right time to dig them up and plant them?


mine push new growth from the bush but not runners. interesting. id give them the summer to establish then transplant next spring. thats what i do with my romance cherries.

My other 4 have only pushed growth from the bases as well, I was surprised to see this


My Grand traverse has done this

Did you plant out the runners? Any tips?

Any seeds attached? Kinda far from bush

No seeds yet, just planted last spring


Wow. Cool

I haven’t but think I’ll dig one up in the dormant season now
