Pot up acer plants and grow them on in cool frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside in their final positions. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions before transplanting them in borders outdoors. Grow acer trees in any moist, fertile, well drained soil in sun or dappled shade, with shelter from strong winds which can scorch the finely cut leaves. Alternatively grow acers in large containers using a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until acer trees are well established. Protect plants from strong winds. Acers require little pruning other than to maintain their shape. Lightly trim stems if necessary from late autumn to midwinter.

  1. Described as a hardy tree!!!

    By Gail Boyce 13-03-2017

    My Acer Rubrum arrived this morning and to say I'm disappointed is very much an understatement. It looks like it was graphed onto rootstock yesterday, it is held together with what looks like an elastic band. The pot is square and is barely 9cm corner to corner it is not worth the £16.99 I have paid for it. It falls well short of the usual high standard of Thompson and Morgan.

    Just received plant - not very impressed and wish I had read reviews before spending money. No instructions on planting. You would never purchase one in this condition in Garden Centre.
