Moving an acer before it dies?
I'm a newbie and also a gardening novice. I moved into my own home two years ago, mum gave me an acer shrub which i planted in the front garden. It seemed ok last year, but this year i noticed the stems have turned white and the leaves have gone crispy. Having actually done some research i've discovered i've planted it in the completely wrong spot, it's windy and gets full sun in the afternoon when its hottest. The soil is sandy and therefore very dry. The poor thing must be frazzled!
Anyway, i really don't want it to die, but i'm worried if i try and move it now it will die, but if i leave it where it is getting 'burnt' will it also die?
I was just wondering if anyone had any advice!?
