Such a shame you can't have one Michelle. Do you not have a shady, sheltered spot where you could give it a go? They can be quite tricky and temperamental (I lost all the leaves off my 6' Acer due to a position change - too windy) but are worth it for the colour. So long as you keep them well watered in the heat and out of the wind you should be OK.
Good luck with it Doglet! Please post a photo when it comes into leaf. Which Acer did you get?

I love your pic, they're my fave tree. Mine was a beautiful shape, arched branches, till it fell off the wall & one side completley snapped off! I was gutted but it's still growing well.

I'm looking for a couple of acers to include somewhere in the garden & would like one of them to be red. I really like this one ... does it keep the same colour through its foliage season? I know there are some that start pinkish or red, but are only like that for a short time, & then revert to green.
