In hopes my hand grafted filbert will produce one day...

I took a plant propagation class in January of 2012 in which I was able to graph a few apple trees and a single hazelnut. All have survived to date and this week the first of the catkins formed on the hazelnut. I am wondering if I am going to need to invest in a second plant for this one to produce in the next few years, this plant seems to have a secondary trunk that has formed (at ground level, far below the graft) and both seem to be budding and leafing as expected. It is the newer truck that is forming the catkins. I am hoping to layer a branch this fall and get it rooting but I am not sure it this is the best course.

I think you would get a better response on this in a tree forum than the rose forum.
