Last year I had 2 acers and this year only 1.It is 2 years old but the growth is very slow.I know my garden soil is not very well drained but I am trying my best by giving feed.Is there any tip that it can grow little bit faster:)?




Lovely colour foliage Shahida - these are slow growing plants, but the most critical thing at the moment is whether it gets enough water - I know Essex is as dry as we are here in West London, which is very dry indeed, although it doesn't look as if its suffering from drought. it'll grow at its own rate - overfeeding won't make a difference, just creates lots of sappy growth - don't feed past mid June either.

Full sun and strong winds are the enemies. It is a beauty isn't it?

I can't add to the advice already given but it is a stunning colour.
