Thanks B, I love the Acers, especially in Autumn when the leaves turn almost Crimson.

Very strong colour isn't it and they have such a grace about them too, nice one Jen.

Beautiful colour - I have one but it's very peely-wally compared to yours JJ.

It goes almost crimson in the autumn, love it.They're slow growers aren't they Skillen, I've had this one for about 10 years now.

Yes they do seem to grow very slowly. I think I'll put mine up by the pond in the autumn it may do better in the ground rather than a pot.The acer I have in the front garden grows like a triffyd, I'm always cutting it back. It's a different variety though with large leaves.

Ah yes, they're better in the ground, but we keep ours in a pot so it can be moved around and raised up above the pond when Spring comes.
The other one you have is probably not one of the Japanese types which are generally much smaller and slower growing, but some Acers grow like crazy don't they!
I have a large leaf red one on order at the mo so that will go into the front garden as it'll grow too quickly and be too big for the back, can't wait for it to come! 8o)

Good idea JJ maybe i should keep it in the pot. Do you repot it as it gets bigger? Mine is in a 12" pot at the moment and it's about 2years old. Do you feed them?

20 Sep, 2009

 

Yes you can move them into a slightly larger pot, (next size up), but they seem to like a fairly tight fit. I feed mine weekly from April to September with a liquid seaweed feed, a wonderful organic tonic, it promotes healthy root growth and it really brings the colour up.

I'll try that Jen thanks

You're welcome Skillen. :o)
