Acers - browning and crinkling of leaves.

United Kingdom Gb

Why do my acers' leaves go brown and crinkly at the edges? This happens to the ones in pots and in the soil.



Might be wind burn - they do not appreciate windy corners and love moisture, light shade.

Hi Cornishman.. Possibly you are watering with limy tap water. They do like an acid soil and partial shade. in fact they are tempramental , that's why we love them so much.
