Can I use well-rotted horse manure on my ericaceous shrubs or is it better to stick to sequestrene?
I bought this established Acer from a garden centre four weeks ago. It was a lush green, is still in its existing pot, and is not exposed to wind or long periods of direct sunlight. A week ago it started to change colour and has a dried up orange look and is shedding a lot of its leaves. I dont know what is happening and would appreciate help
I have added these actual photos of the acer
Like in the previous post, I am new to gardening, and this Acer was one of the first plants I bought. It's in pride of place in my garden, in a location that gets full sun from around 9am to noon/1pm. After that, it's in full shade. The edges of the leaves have become very scorched, and it's concerning me. There is new growth, which started showing in early July, so it's obviously strong enough to produce new shoots, and I do water it very well (perhaps too much? Although it drains well). It is in a pot, so I can move it to a permanently shaded location, but have no 'dappled' shade in my garden. Will it survive where it is, or should I move it? Do I need to remove the affected leaves, or will they recover/drop off on their own? Thanks in advance.
I am very new to gardening and have a recently planted an Acer Palmatum Burgundy Lace which was quite established when it was planted with an approx height of just over a metre. Please see image enclosed of when the Acer was first planted. It has been in the ground just over a month now and I am convcerned as the edges of the leaves have started to dry (they look almost scorched) and curl. Please see image enclosed of the leaves. Could you tell me what I am doing wrong?
