Horse Chestnut / Buckeye
Plant in a deeply worked, fertile, moist soil of acid pH. Can be grown in light shade, but perform best in full sun. Because of their fibrous root systems, they are easily transplanted.
Water during periods of drought to prevent leaf-scorch. For best form, A. x carnea ‘Briotii’ should be pruned to a single leader – this is best done during the winter when the plant is dormant.
