We suggest growing the the California buckeye in the garden; these are very rustic plants. With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.We suggest to position the the California buckeye in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.
Cultivation California buckeye
The California buckeye develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree. The California buckeye is small in size and 8 m in height; in the spring it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown.
Fertilize California buckeye
Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted.
Water California buckeye
Water sporadically, with 1-2 buckets of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 4-5 weeks . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
Pests California buckeye
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Mold California buckeye
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
