In order to be able to collect tasty chestnuts from your own garden, it takes more than just planting a tree somewhere and waiting. Among other things, it is also important to prevent insufficient fertilization or damage caused by late frost.

The sweet chestnut likes it warm and sunny

With the choice of a variety suitable for your region, a carefully chosen location and good care, a rich harvest is not rocket science. The sweet chestnut prefers a warm and bright spot in humus-rich and well-drained soil. Prolonged waterlogging affects it far more than a period of drought. A second nearby chestnut increases the fertilization rate and your harvest.

The best location for the chestnut:

  • sunny
  • warm
  • with well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • near other chestnuts

tips

More chestnut trees nearby are advantageous for a rich harvest. Therefore, plant at least two chestnuts.
