There has been increased incidence of what was thought to be Phytophthora bleeding canker on Horse Chestnut esespecially in the South East and Midlands of England. It is now believed th cause is bacterium rather than fungus but research is ongoing. Some arborists suggest Aesculus indica is immune to the infection.
However, as it is not a common tree the jury is still out on this one.

It has deeply cut leaves making it one of the prettiest of the Chestnut family, however it can sometimes set flower on the terminal growing bud, making it difficult to grow straight, but this is our problem to resolve, not yours!

The Indian Horse Chestnut originates in the Himalayas, it was introduced to Britain in the 1850s. We are indebted to Henry Girling who kindly gave us seeds from the clonal selection 'Sydney Pearce' from his garden.
