Acer Palmatum trees are best grown in neutral or acidic soil and always with good drainage. If your soil is heavy it can often be improved by adding plenty of organic matter and perhaps some horticultural grit, well mixed with the existing soil. Unsuitable soil may also be overcome by growing them in pots, ericaceous compost is ideal although you might like to add some good quality loam bases compost for better water retention during dry weather and to give the compost a little more body. Do be sure to add some ‘crocks’ (broken tiles or similar) at the bottom of the pot before filling it to guarantee effective winter drainage.

Our Acer Palmatum Maples are low maintenance plants and would need little maintenance once established. Pruning is not normally necessary except perhaps to remove congested or diseased branches which should be undertaken in winter or early spring before the new leaves emerge. These handsome little trees rarely suffer from pests and diseases.

Our young Acers are supplied as pot grown specimens meaning they may be planted successfully at any time of year as there is no root disturbance. When planting young Acers we always recommend adding rootgrow to give them the very best start.
