Surrey, United Kingdom
Acers....I have 2 - a 3/4 yr old Senkaki which is green. Got it from RHS Wisley in March this year and is supposed to go through some nice colour changes....Hmmm, and then a fairly small potted Atropurpureum ( still in pot, the other went straight into the ground along with relevant compost and feed) Both are in semi-shade and shelter but I'm having awful trouble with leaf burn. Have done no foiliage feeding on either but did spray the Senkaki with derris due to blackfly back in May - no return since. They are both still producing new growth, however overall they look very sick.
The Purpureum was only a few quid from Homebase, but Sensaki was 45.
Not the money. I so want these trees to thrive. Have checked leaves, stems and soil for pests but nothing ',cept the aphids.
Anyone got any ideas? Please
