      I´m afraid the trees have to be grafted to be of the same quality than
      their mothers are. though I´ve heard seedlings doesn´t vary that much
      in chestnuts as they do e.g. in apples.
      Last 3 years we collected good seed from the area, too, for seedlings
      for a hedge. But still of course we don`t have any results concerning
      the fruit-qualitiy.
      From 7 different trees´seeds we had very different germination-success:
      0%
      0%
      0%
      3%
      15%
      41%
      100%
      A big problem here in lower sachsony are late frosts in open
      situations, that e.g. this year were able to kill the young leaves of
      small seedlings several times.

              Great work Frank - you do seem the tree seed collector extrodinare. That looks like your best source Ludd. I collected quite a lot of sweet chestnut seed this year as it has been a fantastic season for such nuts this year in Kent. I collected the nuts from the best trees...but these nuts were smaller than the seed I got this year from Martin Crawford of ART who has trials of SC of named varieties.
              ...worth checking out, he might have some left. He also had walnuts buy the way. The ones I collected taste good good good! MMMM, one of my favourite foods is sweet chestnut. Now all I need is an airgun to shoot squirrel and I'll have quite a feast! I've just got a *Windy Smithy* stove with oven. I miniture wood burner that is fantastic! Not roasted anything yet...other than potatoes. If you get a WS stove, get him to cut a hole to place pans on the top of the stove - this way you can get heat much quicker from cold start up. (Tell him to make the circle 1 cm larger than the one he did for me I would say)I dont have electricity which is a bummer because that mean limited sounds. Let alone live streaming internt radio. We call it revolution. Sharing, taking pyscotropic drugs, making free telepathic OM LOVE... an stuff.
