East Lothian, United Kingdom
This acer is about 2 feet high. It has been in for two years. Last year it lost its leaves very early but we thought it was because it was "settling in". The branches looked healthy enough. This year's leaves also looked healthy but recently it has developed rusty edges to the leaves. A gardener we know said that he has tried to grow the same acer and it kept dropping its leaves so that most of the time it was just bare twigs. Is there anything I can do to stop the same thing happening to our acer? Are the rusty bits (see photo) an indication that anything is wrong?
