Tiny chestnuts?

If the tree is genetically programmed to have small nuts, getting it lots of friends will make absolutely no difference at all.

Or put a 2 litre plastic bottle (top and bottom removed) over each one and spray glyphosate into the bottle. Or put a bucket(s) over the plants you don't want to spray.

Glyphosate at the correct dilution is recommended for aquatic use.

Firstly I would check very, very carefully that you are talking about telephone wires and not power cables.

They will look ugly if you cut the tops off them. Perhaps you could plant some more, but not where they will grow into any wires.

Tiny chestnuts?

Are you sure it is a sweet chestnut as we usually know it. I've never seen one with furry leaves. It isn't some strange variety from America is it?

If you leave the gooseberries until they are really ripe, you can eat them raw.

Fools, pies, crumbles, and other delicious things. And they freeze well.

If you want the plant to get bigger, leave them alone. Is the plant in a big enough pot to support the extra growth?

A great idea for improving slippery wheelbarrow ramps!

The same result can be achieved by nailing chicken wire to the ramp.

Well, I have what I call a Garden Room. It is an extension with lots of windows and roof lights. I can use it every day of the year. Conservatories are either costly to heat or unusable either because it is too hot or too cold. Take care there are lots of sharks pretending to be nice people out there.

Visit some of your friends and see what they have. Might French windows serve your purpose?
