Thank you very much for the Orange tree complete with flowers and baby oranges. You truly are a Victorian nursery I used to pack all the trees I sent out by rail using straw bundles similar to yours. Actually we used long straw and no outer polythene.We also used twine macramed on the outside to hold the bundle together. There is nothing wrong with your packing. It remided me of the old days. I am 78. Now I have to find a suitable container whivh no doubt will be expensive. Versailles sell them and a pottery in the south of France makes the other tradional type. I was a bit surprised when I visited Kew Gardens, that they did not have one single orange tree in their orangerie. Lovely web site and lovely young orange tree in perfect order.

The Sweet Chestnut tree offers more than just an abundance of nuts for roasting in the autumn - the wood of the sweet chestnut tree is an excellent source of durable and hard timber, making it a practical addition to any those looking to live a bit more self sufficiently!
Coppicing is relatively easy if you have the space, and the average Sweet Chestnut tree should ideally be kept at around 12 feet in height, so perhaps not a tree for those with limited space. Our sweet chestnut trees for sale are supplied as bare root trees in the dormant season and potted trees during the Spring and Summer.
Produces large kernels from approximately its third year of planting. Can be maintained at approximately 12 feet (4 metres) tall. Self Fertile.
Supplied as a pot grown tree pruned to approximately 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall including pot.
