in the early years of this century, such a linen-weaver, named Silas Marner, worked at his vocation in a stone cottage that stood among the nutty hedgerows near the village of Raveloe, and not far from the edge of a deserted stone-pit.

What does nutty mean here?

    Bearing nuts. I would guess hazels are the most likely component of a hedgerow that would give nuts. I don't see hazels in hedges today, but they're about the right size for it.
