my son brought an Acer growing in a pot about a year ago. The leaves have all fallen off & it has not restarted to shoot like it should. We checked for grubs in the soil and repotted it not sure if it will bouce back?



Scrape back a bit of bark with a fingernail to see if its moist and green underneath in 2 or 3 places, near the base, halfway up and the top. If its dry and brown in side, its dead - the pot may have frozen over winter and if it did for longer than about 8 days, it will have killed the roots.
