A native to warmer climes, Sweet Chestnuts are a sun-loving large deciduous tree with vigorous growth. Care must be taken to avoid frost hollows as Sweet chestnuts are susceptible to frost and won’t produce nuts without warmth and sunshine.
Castanea sativa has long shiny green serrate leaves that appear in spring with catkins in late spring followed by the fruit encased in spiky burs in June-July. Harvest is usually around October.
Sweet Chestnut trees like full sun with well-drained fertile deep soil, sand or loam! A beautiful tree, often grown as a specimen tree, is suitable for a large garden or park space.

The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
