Description

But, no matter how small your garden is, or how little space you have available, one plant you will be able to find space for is an acer tree. Hugely attractive, long lived, slow growing and with manageable heights these are the perfect trees for small gardens. Plant in a loam-based or ericaceous compost with a high portion of organic matter and good drainage.

Choose a straight edged pot rather than a rounded bulbous one as these are easier to remove if the roots have expanded. The tree you receive from us will already be five to six feet tall. We’ll ship it to you in a 7.5 litre pot all ready for planting.

Acer palmatum 'Beni-shichihenge' - a beautiful, very unusual upright Japanese deciduous Acer. Leaves are green in the centre, with contrasting shrimp pink and orange margins. A superb dwarf compact tree ideal for the edge of patios and to add structure without taking over smaller gardens. Acers with darker foliage colours (red to purple) can handle a bit more sun than the pale green and yellow varieties. Acer palmatum dissectum 'Stella Rossa' - slow growing deciduous Acer with lacy, pink-red foliage in the spring, which darkens to a rich purple in the summer, finally changing to bright flame-red in the autumn. Weeping habit, ideal for growing in containers, or for in a small garden. Acer palmatum 'Beni-Maiko' - a dwarf variety of deciduous Japanese Maple with brilliant fire red colours. Foliage has a crinkled appearance, opening bright red in spring time, fading to reddish-pink, then green in the summer, followed by blazing red in the autumn. Grows well in a large tub or planter, and is ideal for creating a Japanese theme anywhere in your garden.

Acer palmatum dissectum 'Crimson Princess' - a deciduous Acer has an upright weeping habit, creating a mushroom like display. Finely cut, fabulous deep purple-red leaves emerge from red buds turning bronze in the summer, followed by brilliant crimson-scarlet in autumn. Apart from being slow growing and long lived small acers have even more going for them. They are of course outstandingly attractive trees. The rich colours and forms of their foliage gives a boost to any planting scheme. Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society for its outstanding qualities Acer palmatum 'Shaina' - a medium sized compact deciduous Acer, with an upright growth habit. Fantastic bright red spring leaves turn a brilliant dark red in summer, followed by bright crimson in autumn. It will grow to form a dense and compact globe of small red foliage - a slow growing Japanese maple that is an ideal selection for containers or small gardens. Prefers partial shade, but can tolerate full sun, as long as the plant is shaded for a small part of the day.

They will grow in most soils except very dry, waterlogged or alkaline conditions. A moist yet well-drained, slightly acidic loam rich in organic matter is ideal. Other soils can be enriched with ericaceous compost when planting. They are both a focal point and a focus of conversion. They make wonderful features and will be the crowning glory in any garden. They look simply majestic. Some acers can grow to well over 40 feet with a correspondingly large spread. On the face of it, acers don’t seem that suitable for small gardens. However, large acers are an exception rather than a rule and even those which grow the tallest will take decades to achieve their full height.

Both the wind and sun can also increase the moisture loss from the leaves and cause them to dry out and break. Japanese maples that have been planted out into the garden don't require heavy fertilisation so feed sparingly ideally using a fertiliser with a 3:1 ratio of nitrogen to phosphorus in spring. Avoid using nitrogen lawn feed in the immediate vicinity as excessive nitrogen can cause overly vigorous growth that's more vulnerable to disease. Whilst primarily known for their leaves, Maple trees can also produce flowers and fruits called 'samaras'. The fruits spin as they fall due to their shape and are commonly known as 'maple keys', 'whirlybirds' and 'polynoses'. Children often refer to them as helicopters and the US army even designed an air drop supply carrier based on this 'helicopter' technique. History & Uses of Acer TreesAffected plants start to wilt, sometimes just one section, with lower leaves becoming discoloured to yellow and brown.

Any rotten root matter and the surrounding soil should be removed and disposed of (not in the compost heap).
