Fertilization European chestnut
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer.

Generalities European chestnut
The European chestnut develops like a tree. European chestnut isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 30 m in height. The European chestnut develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown.

Watering European chestnutTenere asciutto
The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings. We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 4-5 weeks .

Treatments European chestnut
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil European chestnut
Let’s place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
