Truffle Tree Gift
This Truffle Tree Gift is organically nurtured so when you place your order a beautiful Hazel truffle tree will be freshly selected by devoted gardeners before being carefully wrapped in organza and placed in your luxury gift parcel.
This beautiful Hazel truffle tree’s roots are growing in a symbiotic relationship with the native Summer Truffle fungus (Tuber aestivum uncinatum) an underground mushroom which is a highly prized delicacy worth more than its weight in gold!
Since ancient times the Truffle has been treasured for its intense, aromatic flavours. The Hazel Tree under which it grows symbolises Faith, Wisdom and Inspiration.
The truffle fungus will slowly mature with your Hazel tree and as the precious truffle nuggets ripen, in 4-5 years, they can be foraged every summer for the next 50 years.
All the trees are organically nurtured so when you place your order a beautiful Hazel truffle tree will be freshly selected by devoted gardeners before being carefully wrapped in organza and placed in your luxury parcel.
This deciduous Hazel truffle tree naturally transforms with every season. In spring its catkins blossom with dainty flowers which are loved by our bees. The abundance of lush leaves are perfect for birds to safely make their nests in summer. In autumn ripe hazelnuts can be eaten fresh from the tree before its leaves turn pale yellow and fall.
This tree is deciduous so will remain naturally dormant all winter until the warmth of spring sun encourages new buds to grow and it is well worth the wait.
This truffle tree is supplied 55-65cm high and it will be quite happy to be lightly pruned in early autumn and will reach a height of 3 metres in 10 years if it is allowed to grow naturally.
