Norfolk, United Kingdom
We have a ten year old acer palmatum in a container, last year it's leaf growth was sparse and this year it has no growth at all. A scrape test on the trunk shows no 'green ring', and when we took it out of the pot it is infested with ants, with tunnels and eggs all through the root ball. It's been in the current container for 7 or 8 years but doesn't appear root bound. It is the first plant my husband and I brought as a couple so any help would be greatly appreciated!
