Watering Black locustTenere asciutto
We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. 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.

Generalities Black locust
These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Black locust is medium in size and 8 m in height; in the spring it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Black locust develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree.

Exposure Black locustSole pieno
The Black locust 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 Black locust should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

Treatments Black locust
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 Black locust
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
