Re: Dunstan chestnuts

Re: Dunstan chestnuts

Yes, we will be having a Dunstan sale again in 2014. Bare root trees with the option of also buying tree tubes and stakes (both are recommended). I also put fabric down as a grass mat and put welded wire fence around the whole thing too. Keeps the deer away from the trees so they won't rub and knock the tubes down or eat the leaves/shoots. Darn things will eat everything if you don't protect it!!

Re: Dunstan chestnuts

Purchased 13 of them last year. All but one made it through the summer. I'm anxious to see how they make it through the winter.

Re: Dunstan chestnuts

A few important things when planting the dunstan's, or any mast bearing tree, 1) use a weed matting to control weeds around the tree 2) tube/stake/fence them in or the deer will destroy them before they can be established 3) use a few fertilizer spikes per tree after planting and going into winter, it'll boost growth. Don't use granular fertilizer as it may burn the tree 4) Make sure you water the trees every week, minimum once per week when it's dry during the growing season. 5) Prune every branch and leave a central leader. If you do these extra steps the trees will grow like mad!!!!
