Temperatures European beechSole pieno
If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds. Let's grow the the European beech in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.Let's grow the the European beech outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Feed European beech
Letís fertilize the plants when implanting them, or every 2-3 years, towards the end of the winter or beginning of Autumn. A good quantity of organic fertilizer, such as manure or earthworm humus should be mixed to the soil at the foot of the stem; in this manner we will supply it with a good quantity of nutrients and we will also improve the mixture of the soil.

Care European beech
The development of the the European beech is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree. This plant in the summer assumes a purplered colouring; it is large in size and can reach 30 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Irrigation European beechTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the European beech every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.

Adversity European beech
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate European beech
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
