Question & Answer

Hi so this plant will self fruit or do I need another chestnut plant to pollenate it? and can I grow it in a big 60cm pot or does it need to be planted in the ground? From: WOONONA NSW

You do not need another chestnut for it to set fruit. Under Item specifications it says Pollination: Beneficial. This means that having more than 1 chestnut will result in a bigger crop. In relation to growing in pots I would say that you would be pushing it as they are meant to be quite large trees 6-12 meters. I think it would be better in the ground.
