Watering ChestnutTenere asciutto
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. Letís avoid watering the The Chestnut excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water .

Generalities Chestnut
The development of the The Chestnut is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is large in size and can reach 16 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree.

Treatments Chestnut
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.

Soil Chestnut
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
