Hey Stephen.  It won't be much longer before these trees wake up.  So I'm doing my final sales before I just plant whatever is left over.  I don't think I ever got your order.  So if you are still serious about it, nows your chance.  Thanks a bunch.  
Hi Greg, thanks for reaching out.  I think they will.  They are hardy to your zone. I see lots of references for recommendations for planting in zone 5. I think you are on the right track by planting more densely.  These are trees from awesome genetics, but there is enough variability that you will be able to select the trees to keep that are most adapted to your site and climate.  
If you order and want to get a combination of both varieties, just mention so in the 'order notes' at check out.  
Hi Stephen.  I can split orders 50/50 with both varities, no problem.  The free shipping is anywhere within the United States.  

As for the Kohr variety, I also have not found a lot of info on it.  I know it is one of the varities grown in the Missouri State University Agroforestry department in their chestnut trials.  It has proven to be a quality tree with commercial viability.  

Happy planting! :)

All grown at our permaculture farm and budding community in Southern IL.  Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. Immense gratitude for all the support! Happy planting!
Hey Michael.  Sorry for the delayed reply.  I somehow missed your question.  

I both let them grow on the ground, as well as over a trellis.  I find that the yields are improved when they have a trellis.  

Take care!
Yes, the groundnuts are still available.

Here is the link: https://www.interwovenpermaculture.com/store/p8/groundnut.html

The comfrey we offer is Russian Comfrey Bocking #4.  It is sterile.  As of now, we only have root cuttings posted on our website.  I will try and get the root crowns posted on there ASAP.  In the meantime, if you do want comfrey root crowns, just order the root cuttings (link below), and mention in the notes that you would like crowns.  Instead of 15 cuttings, I will send 7 root crowns.  

Here is a link to the comfrey: https://www.interwovenpermaculture.com/store/p19/Comfrey%2C_Bocking_%234_Root_Cuttings.html
