I read up on another question about this plant and "the growing season" was mentioned. I was curious to know exactly when that is. Also, if winter is around, would it be smart to leave an Oil-Filled heater on near the plant to maintain the 70 degree temperature?

Horse Chestnut trees

I have 2 VERY large and very old horse chestnut trees in my garden and the soil underneath is very bare (i.e. no lawn will grow there). I want to plant something underneath the tree and have done lots of research on plants for under trees (i.e. lots of shade and possibly also quite dry soil). However I have heard from someone that there is something in particular about Horse Chestnuts that makes it hard to grow anything underneath them. Others say they are just like any other tree. Can anyone shed any light on this? If they are different from other trees can you explain why this is? Does it affect the soil ph? or are there root toxins like with black walnuts? Any advice on what I can do to improve the chances of anything I plant, or on what the best things to plant would be? So far I am thinking of vinca, lily of the valley, snow drops and other bulbs and maybe heathers or some alpines. There is a pretty big area to cover so I don't want to buy masses of plants and then have them all die. Please help if you can.
