Wallyworld in Newport received their shipment yesterday if anyone close by was wanting any.I got the pick of the litter this morning. Anyone have any tips for taking care of these things? At 30 bucks apiece I want to give these 4 guys all the help I can.

Looked healthy, most were about 5 ft. Trunk were a little smaller than expected but these are the first I've bought so I have nothing to compare.

Will you be able to regularly water them during the summer? If not, I would consider keeping them in a Rootmaker or similar pot until next fall.

I keep mine all at the house until fall... Just because I cannot get to the farm to water.

They were that price last year. Advice? Well I bought (9) last year and got lazy on (3) of them and didn't fence around them. (2) feel victim to browsing and the other one is barely hanging on. They'll all need pruned this winter; I just googled the recommendations for pruning chestnut trees and pruned mine in February.
