Q.Can You Keep Horse Chestnut Trees in a Container?

Jackie added on April 20, 2011 | Answered

I’d like to buy a horse chestnut tree for a friend, but she doesn’t have her own garden at the moment. Can they be kept in a container, and if so, for how long? Many thanks.

You can grow any tree in a container as long as you have enough room for the roots and can provide the water it needs. If the tree is just a sapling, you can likely keep it in a container for at least a few years before its space and water needs become more than you can provide.
