I like the articleCultivation Chestnut
The Chestnut is medium in size and 15 m in height; in the spring it assumes a pink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Chestnut develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree. Fertilize Chestnut
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. Light Chestnut
We advise cultivating the The Chestnut outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures. We suggest to position the The Chestnut in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.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. Water Chestnut
Let's wet abundantly with about 2-3 buckets of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 2-3 weeks . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. Pests Chestnut
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 Chestnut
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
There aren't any notes. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
