Somewhere on here you say you have 15 Acers all in pots?
I'm in a cold spot in Kent and am getting an acer "BLoodgood to grow in a pot.
You must be an expert on potted acers so have you any tips about soil/care/etc ?

I would nt say I was an expert they have lots of gravel for drainage bottom of the pots then in ericaceous soil fine leaf ones don 't like the winds they get wind burn on their leaves broad leaf ones cope better in windy places keep watered in dry weather and move pots now and then to prevent vine weevle attacking the roots.
