Why has our Acer Palmatum Atropurpureum gone straggly?
Cumbria, United Kingdom
We have had the Acer in a large pot for ten years and last year it was magnificent, but this year although it started well it has gone very straggly. We wondered about planting it in the gravel in the small front garden which has the sun in the mornings and is also where it is now, but worry it might grow too large. Also it never goes bright red in Autumn, what could be the reason for this?
