The Giant filbert should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. 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.The Giant filbert should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.
Generalities Giant filbert
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Giant filbert is large in size and 6 m in height; in the summer it assumes a purplered colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Giant filbert has a shrub- like development.
Fertilization Giant filbert
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.
Watering Giant filbert
Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
Treatments Giant filbert
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.
Soil Giant filbert
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
