If growing in a pot, use a 50/50 mix of ericaceous and multipurpose compost if you can – although again don’t worry overly about this. If planting in the garden, prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork, incorporating organic matter as needed to improve moisture retention and condition. Plant your Acer so that the top of the root ball is just slightly below ground level. Fill the planting hole with soil and heel well in. Water well.

Allow your Japanese Maple to get used to a whole day in the sun by starting it off in the shade, then standing it in its final su y spot (in pot or in the garden soil) for one hour longer every day for a week. Water regularly and deeply. Feed with our specialist Acer feed. Mulch every couple of years with well-rotted garden compost or well-rotted manure or leaf mould.
