I planted some conkers with my children; one has sprouted. I am looking for some advice on what to do next. It would be wonderful to have a tree in the garden, but I don’t know if I’ve got enough space. Can you help?
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?
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!
