Hi folks can you tell me if got an Acer (maple) in a pot if had it in pot for about 2/3 years it has got leaves on now again can I transfer it to the garden now or will it kill it ....thank you ...



No, you can transfer it to the ground, BUT, the best time to do that would be autumn. You can do it now, but that means you'll need to give it a couple of gallons of water about every 6 or 7 days up till autumn, unless we're having torrential rain.

No, (unless it gets some kind of disease or something which could happen in a pot anyway) - provided you choose a sheltered spot that isn't fully exposed to sunshine, particularly at midday, where it isn't windy and you keep it well watered as I suggested.
