I have some dry horse chestnut seeds from last year. Will they still germinate, and if so, can you advise me on the best way to do this?


3. Planting Horse Chestnut From Seed

Asked by Anonymous - July 22, 2011

As a child I sat on my roof under a Horse Chestnut tree. When I got married I grabbed a handful of Horse Chestnut seeds and told myself that I would plant them when I bought my first home. After 13 years, I took them out of my jewelry box and placed them in the ground in the fall. The next spring I had 7 trees. I just don’t remember how I planted them. There is a small portion of the seed that is light beige or white, and I think that I placed the seed in the ground with that side down. Am I correct? I have 7 brothers and sisters who would now love to have a childhood memory too!
