Good morning, I have just received my first delivery from you (various vegetable plants) and wanted to say how pleased I am with the quality of the plants you sent me! The plants arrived on the day you said they would, carefully packed and in very good condition. They were larger than I was expecting which made planting them really easy. Thank you too for the helpful information about planting enclosed with each plant as well. I shall be recommending you to all my friends and family! Your website is very good too!

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 bare root tree pruned to approximately 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall including roots.
