Irrigation 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. We suggest watering the The Chestnut 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.

Care 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.

Temperatures ChestnutSole pieno
Let's grow the The Chestnut in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. 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 Chestnut outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Adversity 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 aren’t 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 Chestnut
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
