Description
Compact in its growth habit, the field maple is an ideal candidate for a native hedge, its large leaves soon form an effective screen and windbreak and it will be greatly appreciated by nesting birds in the spring and early summer. Acer campestre takes well to clipping regularly too and the winged fruits in autumn will appear as the leaves change colour to yellows and reds for additional interest. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 30 - 45 cm (12" - 18"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

How to Grow
Grow acer trees in any moist, fertile, well drained soil in sun or dappled shade

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info
Water regularly throughout the growing season until acer trees are well established. Acers require little pruning other than to maintain their shape.
