i have an acer in a pot which has developed dry brown brittle ends to the leaves can you help me cure this problem



firstly make sure its protected from the wind and full sun. secondly how much have you been watering it? too much or too little also affects the leaves.

I second Catty's point about full sun and wind. Brown tips to the leaves could be under but not over watering. If you live in the drought ridden south with the acer being in a pot you will need to keep well watered.
