(Conker Tree) Native to the Balkans in Southeastern Europe, Horse chestnut is a stout deciduous tree to 90 feet tall, magnificent, whith a spreading crown tipped by handsomely swollen, resiny buds. An excellent choice for creating the mature landscape, the tree also makes a fine bonsai. The nuts are employed for making Bach remedies and as a natural whitening agent used by dyers and weavers. Traditional usage (TWM): tonifying blood vessels. We are supplying fresh, moist, cold-stored nuts freed from the pericarp, prepared for immediate planting. Bury seeds 3 inches deep in rich, moist soil in the outdoor propagation bed or in a deep pot. You can plant one to 3 seeds per pot. Seeds planted in the fall to early spring will germinate and grow in the spring. If seeds are already sprouted on receipt, plant 3 inches deep with sprout down and tamp securely. The aerial parts will soon show.
