Can you propagate hazel the same way as willow ie to cut a stick and stick it in the ground somewhere else ? Some bushes by me are set to be grubbed out so we can have eco solar panels .

You can lay it over cut back the bark and peg into the ground to get root growth. Then maybe uplift that new root ball.

No mate. You can't. Willow and some poplar varieties will certainly take root over time. Hazel certainly will not. Jok.

Airlayering is a technique that will work on any tree or shrub goole it i used to use it to remove branches from trees that would make a well shaped bonzai tree

How big are the bushes? Can you not transplant the whole thing?

Not quite sure how that works, hardwood cuttings, done between Autumn and Spring-remove large leaves and shoots, my hardwoods don't have leaves or shoots between Autumn and Spring.

I have a large hazel tree in my garden, so have been following this with interest as would love to plant some more around the farm from it if possible.

Bare root hazel whips aren't very expensive for anyone interested in planting some around the place.

Taking it a step further then. I, for years and years, have used willow for both runner bean and pea sticks in my garden. Each year they bud and leaf even forming roots. I then take them out after harvest, bundle them up and put them away for next year. Last year I was gifted 2 bundles of ash and hazel. They dried out within 4/5 weeks . No chance whatsoever of regrowth. Now maybe young shoots, given a growth hormone might propagate but adult branches, in my opinion. Will not. Jok.

Never to old to learn, I had never heard that before. I will give it a try and see what happens as I have access to plenty.
