I planted my acer in the ground last year after it was in a pot, since then its branches have looked dry and brittle though they do have some buds on, will it flower again or have i killed by taking it out its pot.

Asked from the GoYpedia acer trees page



No, you won't have killed it by planting it out. You don't say where you are in the UK, but if you're in a drought area (south, east) it may well be short of water, so if that's a possibility, give it a good soak while you can. We've only got till Wednesday to use a hose.

i think it will be ok make shure it is kept wet around base and feed it every 2 weeks for a while with ericasious feed or tomato feed

Erm,sorry Snoopdog, no, don't feed it tomato food - that has too high a potash level for a foliage plant. Just give it a general purpose feed such as Growmore or similar as the leaves start to come out. Assuming they do, that is...
