Problems with a Horse Chestnut
I am trying to grow a horse chestnut in a mediterranean climate and seem to have endless problems. Last year my 4 foot tree got mouldy leaves and then just gave up and died. This year my 3 plants which are all 1 foot high have got brown leaves that look like they are burnt. I have one plant in direct sun, one in the shade and one in part sun part shade. Can anyone advise me as to what I am doing wrong? Do horse chestnuts hate the med climate? Could the humidity in the air be the problem? Any help greatly appreciated.
