I have two Acers which are both just under 4 years old. They have been kept in pots and sheltered over winter in the greenhouse until this last winter where they were left under the shade of trees in the garden. In spring they showed good new growth with plenty of leaf but then one seemed to be showing signs of wind damage and the other (red acer) lost all its leaves and the stems are harsh. We re-potted both plants and found ants had nested in both pots, would this have caused any of the problems?
The red acer is: Acer Palmatum-Bloodgood
The green acer is: Acer Palmatum-Dissectum
