what is the best feed for an acer? chinese or japanese?

Asked from the GoYpedia acer trees page



I always use an ericaceous feed, though we have very hard water here.

We never feed any tree, if you have it in a container it might need a very occasional ericaceous feed, but in the soil, unless your soil is very alkaline nothing.

True, I've only ever grown them as bonsai. We do feed many trees in the ground here, but not usually the native ones.
