can a red acer be dug up and reptted, and when is the best tim to do this?



If the acer is currently growing in the garden then it will have formed a widespread root system which you will not be able to cram into a pot without extensive surgery to the roots. I would not recommend such an action.
If you mean to move the acer from one pot to a larger one I would wait until the leaves have fallen and do it then.
