Re: Dunstan chestnuts
A few important things when planting the dunstan's, or any mast bearing tree, 1) use a weed matting to control weeds around the tree 2) tube/stake/fence them in or the deer will destroy them before they can be established 3) use a few fertilizer spikes per tree after planting and going into winter, it'll boost growth. Don't use granular fertilizer as it may burn the tree 4) Make sure you water the trees every week, minimum once per week when it's dry during the growing season. 5) Prune every branch and leave a central leader. If you do these extra steps the trees will grow like mad!!!!
