Sweet Chestnut hedging not only looks good, but can provide you with delicious sweet chestnuts in late autumn! Castanae sativa tolerates being kept clipped to your desired size, and providing the catkin-flowers aren’t removed when they appear in summer, you will be rewarded with fruits later in the year. Large, oblong leaves up to 20cm (8) in length quickly form an effective privacy screen, and Sweet Chestnut is ideal for mixing with other fruit or nut-bearing hedging plants.Supplied as 60 – 90 cm bareroots (24 – 35) Height: 12m (39′).
