Aesculus Hippocastanum Saplings

The Horse Chestnut or Conker Tree, Aesculus hippocastanum, is a big, spreading, round headed parkland tree with great flowers. It will grow on any well drained soil.
Horse Chestnut is not suitable for a clipped hedge.
It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 35 metres high. It is a good, tall windbreak tree.
The plants on this page are young saplings. You can also buy larger Horse Chestnut trees here.

See our selection of native hedging plants or view our full range of hedging.

Horse Chestnut saplings are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Aesculus hippocastanum:

This is a large and vigorous tree that grows very well across Britain, apart from on the coast or exposed sites in Scotland. It has dense, dark green leaves with 5-6 spear head shaped lobes and in early summer it erupts with tall, thick cones of flowers which are beautiful to look at close up, each little flower resembling a papery little orchid. The autumn colour is yellow with burnt brown edges. The flowers mature into spiky, green seed balls that contain beautifully smooth, polished conkers.

History & uses of Aesculus hippocastanum:

Horse chestnut trees grow well in the city and provide plentiful nectar for bees. They have dense, shaggy canopies that make an effective windbreak and block out light during the summer.
