my 7 year old acer has just started dropping its leaves on some branches, they go brown and curl up. We were at the South of England show today and we asked a gardener who grows acers in this country and he told us that 90 % of the acers sold from garden centres that come from Holland have a disease caused by being grown in greenhouses where there is not enough air circulating, this causing this leaf and branch die back. It has nothing to do with lack of water, too much wind or sun.
My acer is in a semi shady protected area in the garden.
This sound possible to me, what do you think?
