    It does look like Hazel, it's difficult to see from the photo but it looks to be too crowded.

        Yes ..it is Hazel..Corylus avellana.
        I suspect you are being far to kind to it.
        Feeding it with cow manure will just produce more lush growth...at the expense of nuts.
        ie you are spoiling it.

        Treat it mean and it should flower and produce nuts for you.

          Thank you so much to everybody - so no manure, and should fruit be observed next year, cover with net to keep critters away. sorted. thanks again, karaman
