Sweet Chestnut Tree (Castanea sativa)

Sweet Chestnut Tree (Castanea sativa)

Sweet Chestnut Tree (Castanea sativa) Code: NUT010

£21.50 21.5000 In Stock New

 Sold Out 

Castanea sativa

A fast growing large tree. Produces long yellow catkins followed by shiny red-brown edible nuts. The lance shaped dark green glossy leaves turn yellow in the autumn.


Pollination: Two trees are required for pollination.


Available for delivery: late November - late April.


 

If you are fortunate enough to have a fairly large garden and you want to plant a beautiful majestic tree, then a walnut or sweet chestnut tree is definitely worth considering. Walnuts and sweet chestnuts require space and ultimately make large trees. Where space is limited they can be repeatedly ‘tipped’ or alternatively grown in a Root Control Bag to restrict their size. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).

Rootex Root Control Bag (95 Litre)
£22.50 inc. p&pRootex Root Control Bag (95 Litre)A Rootex Bag will produce a tree with more fibrous roots, reduced vigour and will promote early fruiting. Rootex is a special patented copper coated fabric. When the root tip comes into contact with the copper it stops growing, the apical dominance is interrupted and new feeder (fibrous) roots develop further back towards the tree. This prevents roots from circling and enables better absorption of water and nutrients. Rootex is permeable, allowing water and nutrients to pass through it. A tree grown in a Rootex Bag can be transplanted to another site without damage to the root system even 10 years after it was originally planted. These large bags are ideal for large trees such as walnuts, chestnuts and mulberries. Width 45cm x length 45cm x depth 45cm. Capacity: 95 litres.Buy Now
