My Japanese Mapel has come through this year and the leaves seem to be limp. Do I need to give it any feed. If not, what can be causing the problem. It has grown to about 4' and I don't want it to die now. Thanks



mine always starts off with limp hanging leaves. as they unfurl they firm up.

my leaves have just broken on one of my acers the sap is just rising so its uaual for the new leaves to be limp.

The leaves do tend to look a bit limp before they unfurl properly, as the others say - however, although I'm not sure where you are in the UK, in London, I've had the sprinkler on twice in the last fortnight, its been so dry. Make sure your plant isn't suffering from drought.

Funnily enough Bamboo we in the N.E. are having it very dry as well for this time of year! I cant remember ever having to water as I have been recently at this time of year.
