Will my Japanese maple grow its leaves back in time?
Over a week ago, i bought a japanese maple from the nursery. A lot of the leaves had been chewed on by some small grasshoppers, but the owner assured me that the tree would produce new leaves very soon. She removed all the old leaves, while pointing out the numerous buds along the branches. Ive had the tree for over a week and have been watching the buds closely, they appear to be dormant to me. I live in Australia and it is now late summer/early autumn, and was wondering if the leaves would grow back before it gets too cold? The tree looks quite healthy, will it be ok without leaves for so long?
