We are sold out of Waukon seedlings for 2019
These seedlings have parents that are a group of pure Chinese Chestnut trees growing near Waukon, Iowa, in the extreme northeast corner of the state of Iowa. They are located right at the boundary between zones 4 and 5. The trees are blight-resistant, very cold-hardy for Chinese chestnuts, and bear large to extra-large nuts.
We sell these trees as potted or bare-rooted. Potted trees are grown from seed each Spring and are available to leave the nursery when they have developed a good root system. Usually potted trees may leave the nursery by late June. Bare-rooted trees are grown in a special bed for maximum root development all summer. They are dug and bundled in late November for shipping the following April. We ship these trees in April while they are still dormant.
