Hello Walter,

I was wondering, how tall is the chestnut tree? I've always wondered if it's worth trying to make a bonsai out of a chestnut since the leaves tend to get really big.

Hi Walter, here is my horsechestnut tree in a pot, may i ask you for advice on what to do next to train it into a bonsai? Or just keep it healthy in a pot?

Best
Thanks in advance
