Sweet chestnut in a pot
Hi folks, I would really appreciate some advice. I planted this sweet chestnut in a pot two years ago. It seems to spread a lot but doesn't grow upwards much. Should I LOP some branches off to encourage it to grow upwards? My next question is, will I be able to keep this tree in a pot for a long time because I know they grow huge and I only have a small garden. Will it just grow to the size the pot allows or is it likely to die?
I would really appreciate any advice
