Hi me again, sorry.

I got a dormant maple from T&M and it was in a pot and showing buds, i have now put it in the ground and although it has a few leaves it looks a little droopy. I feed once a month with liquid seaweed, am i doing something wrong or is this ok?

Japanese maple and feeding

Reply from Kathy C

Hi, Paula!
I see you have quite a few great plants in your garden - lucky you! I also notice that you are very diligent about feeding - much better than me and I should know better! As far as your J. maple is concerned, you might be feeding it too much. Maples as a general rule do not like to be fed too much at all. If it is in a pot you could get away with feeding it two or three times a year. In the ground, if you have relatively fertile soil, you shouldn't need to feed it at all. Hope this helps! Kathy C
