Hi gardeners. Can anyone suggest a treatment for leaf miner on my horse chestnuts. We have raised them from seed and are ready to plant out in the bog around us. This is affecting the adult trees also. Thank you

A new pest of Chestnuts, Serious to mature trees eventually weakening them so they die in time as they cannot build up enough energy during Spring/Autumn.
1. Burn all leaves in Autumn to prevent overwintering of moth larvae.
2, Plant a different variety such as Aesculus indica or A, Chinensis
3. use a pheremone such as http://www.oecos.co.uk/horse%20chestnut%20leaf%20miner%20info.htm
