organic chestnuts


Growing My Own Chestnut Tree

This winter has been good to me in terms of providing a lot of unique gardening opportunities. After 3 years and multiple attempts, I finally got 1 store bought chestnut to germinate! I can’t believe how fast this thing is growing - 5 inches in the past 2 weeks.

But It turns out chestnut trees don’t really self-pollinate: I need at least one more, but ideally three more trees to have a real chestnut production.
