Several years ago when my children were children (and not adults – how did that happen so fast?!) we planted some conkers in plant pots. Once we had kept the squirrels at bay they began to grow and are now abour six feet tall. They are still in pots as horse chestnut trees can become very large if planted direct into the garden and our garden isn’t big enough. Here’s a photo of one of our trees.

Sensible advice, Rachel! My elder daughter planted a conker in a pot when she was about 6 years old (she is now 35 – argh!) and when it got to be about 2 ft tall my father felt sorry for it and planted it in their garden. Well……
I hope you and your family are keeping well xx
I can imagine! And tree surgery is so expensive!!
