Extremely beautiful small trees, easy to grow in pots, with finely-cut green leaves in summer that transform to red with a dramatic colourful autumn display. Japanese acers have a reputation for being a little sensitive, but if you meet them halfway with some TLC they are worth all the effort.

Acer palmatum - Japanese maple
DESCRIPTION:  Elegant deciduous small tree with hand-shaped maple leaves, light green in spring and turning orangey-red shades in autumn.
USE IN: Plant as a feature or shade tree in the garden or a large pot. Site carefully to avoid having to prune to fit a too-small space.
LOCATION: Needs moist, rich, slightly acid soil in dappled or part shade. Acers will grow in full sun but leaves tend to scorch and autumn colour is reduced; avoid an exposed or windy site for the same reason. Extremely cold hardy.
CARE: Mulch when planting and provide regular water until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Plants need more water in sunnier locations, especally if container-grown. Add slow-release fertiliser in spring, and mulch to keep roots cool. If you must prune, do this in winter, but plants have an elegant natural shape and shouldn't need it.
HEIGHT & WIDTH  4 - 8m H slowly x 4m W
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
