Sweet Chestnut Tree
Fruit Plants, Fruit Trees, Fruit Bushes & Nut Trees
If you are going to plant a tree or bush, then it is going to be there for many years. It's well worth spending some time looking at the different varieties and going for one that will be productive and providing you with a good crop in years to come.
Time spent to prepare the ground properly will repay you many times over. Don't forget to stake the tree for the first few years and protect against rabbits.
For advice on growing your own sweet chestnuts please see our Grow Your Own Sweet Chestnuts guide.
Sweet Chestnut Regal
A really good tree for the garden as it will only reach around 5m (15') height in 10 years. What's more, the delicious nuts are produced after only 2 or 3 years! The tree is very attractive, with shiny green leaves and sweetly fragrant blossom in midsummer. Your nuts will be ready to harvest in October. Supplied 60-90cm high (2-3') high.
