Thanks Kathy C for your good advice - think I'll wrap it in fleece this winter and perhaps cover the pot with bubble-wrap as the plant is not looking very well at the moment. Your advice is much appreciated.

In the shady space I have now planted Acer negundo 'Flamingo', which is a small variegated bush and it seems very happy so far. You are right that Acer Palmatum does not like full sun and can also get damaged by wind. They are quite slow growing, but in a pot I think they may need some extra root protection in the winter. I did lose one Japanese Maple which was in a pot, but the replacement has withstood very low temperatures (even minus 15C) in the ground.

It seems the forum for Acer Palmatum may have some answers to our Acer problem. I was given one as a birthday pres. in July, in a terracotta pot. We put it by a water feature, in full sun (when it comes). The leaves have scorched and some have fallen. Also it is not wind protected. Should we leave it in its pot? Obviously we will relocate it to a shady protected area

Thankyou so much Kathy C for your help re. my Acer. Going to wrap it in fleece as you suggested - I don't have a wall near my garden as I live in an upstairs apartment and my garden is right at the back of me and my neighbours outdoor space. Thanks again for your helpful reply. Gillian

Hi, Gillian,
Make sure you keep it in a warm, sheltered site this winter and protect it from particulary frosty conditions. Make sure it does not get too dry over winter and also make sure the pot doesn't freeze. Come spring, particularly when it is leafing out, keep it out of morning sun - this will cause leaf scorch. Also, frost when the leaves are emerging will damage new leaves so if you know frost is coming in spring, get it protected (warm, sheltered spot). Technically, you could wrap it in hort fleece this winter but as long as it is sheltered (best against a warm house wall), I don't think it is absolutley necessary.

Help needed for my new Acer Palmatum 'shin deshojo' plant

Question from Gillian Linton

In forum: Acer palmatum 'Shin deshojo'

Do I need to protect 'shin deshojo' in the winter? It's a new plant I bought (very small and not in good condition) - I put it in a pot with John Innes No.3 soil and 2 Osmocote tablets last week. It has a couple of small branches with some leaves on still. Any help would be much appreciated.

How big is the space here exactly?

If you're looking for height, some of the Japanese Acers might fit the bill. There are some beautiful dark plum red or yellow/green foliaged varieties. Acer palmatum 'Crimson Queen' is a good variety.

Re: Acer Palmatum Burgundy Lace - Leaf Problems

In forum: Acer palmatum var. dissectum atropurpureum 'Burgundy Lace'

Hello Laura,
Thanks so much for your reply. I did have a planting plan drawn up by an experinced gardener and although the Acer does get sun late morning top early afernoon it is in the shade the rest of the time. Maybe I have not been giving the tree enough water....so I will try that and see what happens. Would you know if its best to cut away the damaged leaves?

Does look like leaf scorch - judging by the pic of the locale probably from too much direct sun. Acers do better in sheltered areas, with some shade and of course water. As a tree it will get thirsty

Acer Palmatum Burgundy Lace - Leaf Problems

Question from Ann Brooks

In forum: Acer palmatum var. dissectum atropurpureum 'Burgundy Lace'

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?

Help

Question from Mel

In forum: Acer palmatum var. dissectum atropurpureum 'Crimson Queen'

Planted a Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum last year and whilst it appears healthy with beautiful coloured leaves there is now a pale tan colour forming around the edges of the leaves.

Is this usual with Japanese Acer's?

Many thanks, Mel.

Re: Acer Problem

Hi Karren

My Acer palmatum is growing in a large container with lots of drainage, and I thought it had died a few years ago. Condition was similar to your photo. When I went to the nursery to buy another I explained the problem and was told it was due to overwatering. Gave mine one more chance, by cutting off all the dead bits (practially just left a stump), and I am pleased to say it is now a beautiful tree (as is the new one I bought). I only occasionaly water thought !!

Regards,

Re: Re: Acer Palmatum Bloodgood

Message from Jane Stymest

In forum: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'

Thanks for your quick response. Further investigation yesterday revealed tiny spiders. I'm wondering if these could be spider mites although research on pc to find picture suggests they are wrong colour and slightly bigger. The areas of cotton wool are in fact tiny spider webs. Also my research into spider mites don't really suggest an attack would kill off an acer, yet alone two, so quickly. Although it must be an infestation of some sort to spread from one acer to another?

Does it look anything like mealy bug? There's some information in the pest section on this site. A former colleague of mine used to use medical alcohol on mealy bug. I used vodka (applied with a small paint brush/ cotton bud) to get rid of it from an acer once before. Cheap vodka is as good as the stuff you might like to drink if so!

Acer Palmatum Bloodgood

Question from Jane Stymest

In forum: Acer palmatum 'Bloodgood'

I have already lost one acer during the past couple of months, probably foolishly thinking this was due to repotting it. The leaves died back starting at the tip of each branch and then fell off. Eventually the whole tree was affected. The same thing has now started on the Palmatum Bloodgood. I have sprayed with both bug clear and fungus clear during the past month but to no avail. I have noticed on the dead acer which is still in pot but removed to another part of the garden, tiny fluffy loose cotton wool areas all over the tree. Looking carefully at my dying acer, also in a pot, I can see similar strands of cotton wool in one or two places and also on a nearby standard fuschia. I have looked carefully but cannot find any signs of insect. Where the branch has been damaged the wood itself has whitened in places. Help!

Hi Ian, this will grow into a sizeable tree, around 4m high. If you can accommodate the height it will do well in a sunny corner. All the best, Marissa

Not so Dwarf

Message from Jason Lock

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Most dwarf Acers are not so dwarf at Wakehurst Place the sister garden to Wisley they had an Acer palmatum Dissectum, which most people believe is a dwarf Acer, not so this one, you could have driven a car under the canopy - agree it was way old, but not all that is dwarf, IS dwarf.

I would try making a raised bed from bamboo canes or banking up soil with vcareful placed rocks - rember though Oriental philosophy dictates that rocks like in nature should be arranged in odd numbers, and graduate in height based on triangles. Build using on this basis and you'll get the right effects.

Acer Palmatum

Message from Owen Breen

In forum: General

That may well be entirely correct, however, before you move the plant consider this. My Acer P. A. is west facing and had the same problem. It seems to be guaranteed with this tree, I have never seen one that does not appear like that at some stage. I know that the roots are very susceptible, especially at planting and times of moving the plant, so I would be tempted to take no action as undue disturbance to the roots can be fatal.
