Description
Why not have a hedgerow that not only looks good but can also provide you with delicious Sweet Chestnuts late in the autumn? Castanae sativa, will tolerate being kept clipped down to the desired size and providing the catkin-flowers aren't cut off after they appear in summer, you will be rewarded with their fruits later in the year. The large oblong leaves reach 20cm (8") in length and will quickly form a dense covering that will be a very effective screen for privacy. Also ideal for mixing in with other nut or fruit bearing hedging plants. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 50cm (20" ). (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

How to Grow
Prior to planting Sweet Chestnut, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Cobnut trees at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and water well to settle the soil.
More Info
Nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from the of base of the hedge. Water young plants during particularly dry periods until fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the hedge. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
