Feed 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.

Care 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.

Irrigation 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. Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 buckets of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy.

Adversity 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.

Substrate European chestnut
Letís place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
