I have some prechious netted fully enclosed space in the chicken run left over and wonder what to plant. I think I have enough fruittrees (maybe) and not enough nuts.
Do chicken/duck and hazelnuts combine? Do hazelnuts like chicken manure?
Otherwise I could try almonds but late frosts might kill the blossoms here. I can get: Price, Carmel,Self Pollinating, Ne Plus Ultra and Californian Papershell. Which ones are late to bloom?
I think walnuts cannot be pruned down to 3 meters.
Sorry I don't have the source, but I did read that hazelnuts don't like too much nitrogen. And in my experience this is very much the case. I had two 2 year old plants that I nearly killed last year by over fertilizing. This year I only applied once in the spring and they are thriving.
