I have an acer in a large pot that has done very well year on year for almost 6 years. Last year it came out beautifully as normal but mid-season the leaves shrivelled and it looked as though was dying. I was surprised when it came up again beautifully this year but within the last month it has shrivelled again. I try not to over water as I've been told acers in pots can become waterlogged easily. However, I do water it if it hasn't rained for a while. Could have outgrown the pot? Should I plant it in the ground?
