i have a ACER palmatum 'deshojo' japenese mapel in a pot 20 litre pot. it survived a very bad winter, but now has leaves curling and one lower branch looks like dying! it is well watered and 3 1/2 ft tall, and 2yrs old.
we had another acer (looks the same, but not sure of the proper name) that the frost killed, which is 4ft away and in the ground. am i over watering it or should i move it to shade.?
please help. i dont want to lose another lovely tree.
thanks donny.

On plant acer palmatum deshojo



If it is in full sun then yes you need to move to part shade, give the heat you are getting down there it will need a lot of water - probably more than you think it does.

thanks moon grower.
im just glad its in a pot, and be moved easy. this site is far better than a cosmetic site i've used. i guess we care more for our plants than make-up and nails!! thanks again.
