    If you have failed to grow olives, then with pistachios is even more risky

    Regarding the chinese chestnut, were you referring to Castanea mollissima? If so, they will grow nicely here.
    About 4 years ago I was in Real Canadian Superstore at Christmas to buy chestnuts to roast. What they had were in very poor condition for roasting but perfect for planting....some were starting to sprout so I bought several and planted them into pots. In the spring I put them in ground in the backyard and ignored them. Now they are about 5-6 ft tall and doing great - not sure if I need a second pollinator but if so there are several other types growing in the neighbourhood.
