Sweet Chestnut Trees

Sweet Chestnut Trees [Castanea sativa] have been grown in this country for many years. Johns Market Garden offers a wide range of these fascinating and rewarding Sweet Chestnuts. Sweet Chestnuts are perfectly hardy trees and can mature into large specimens 20 plus. You do need room for a Sweet Chestnut tree. Maybe you could plant one in a larger lawn, or maybe a Sweet Chestnut tree in your paddock or field margin. The leaves of the Sweet Chestnut tree are long, shiny and very toothed. In Autumn Sweet Chestnut Trees turn a deep and shimmering rustic gold. In Spring too the Sweet Chestnut Tree is a magical site as the long drooping catkins appear. Sweet Chestnut Trees usually begin to crop after about 5 years. This time might be shorter if you plant one of the newer French varieties of Sweet Chestnut Trees such as Maraval or Marigoule.

Sweet Chestnut Trees need no pruning and all are self fertile so there are no pollination issues with Sweet Chestnut Trees. They prefer a well drained soil.
