When to plant





A deciduous tree grown for its foliage and coral coloured bark in winter, lovely sight on a cold grey day. Their growth can be contained by keeping in a pot so they are suitable for a small garden and patio although they are often planted as a specimen on a lawn or focal point in a garden.

Fully hardy, Acers require sun with some shade and fertile, well drained soil. Thriving best in acid to neutral soil in a sheltered position is important, especially when young as the leaves can be damaged by wind. Prune lightly to keep their shape in September to October. Your tree will appreciate a good spring weed, mulch and feed.
