Q.Horse Chestnut Tree

Anonymous added on May 14, 2014 | Answered

I have a Horse Chestnut tree I planted about 12 years ago. It’s approximately 12 feet high and seems to be healthy. I have yet to get any flowers on it though. Any thoughts on this?

I am not really certain why your tree has not produced blooms, other than possibly a lack of phosphorus in the soil. I am assuming that it is planted in an area receiving sun, as you state it is flourishing. Normally, these trees will develop blooms within the first 4 years. Perhaps there is a problem with pollination. I am sorry I cannot be of more help to you, as this has me baffled as well.
