Hi all, Myself and my partner are not 'garden people' but we fell in love with vibrant red acers! So we decided to hunt one down for the front garden. We found our favourite one slumped and in need of some TLC in the corner of a local garden centre last summer and went ahead with planting it. We planted it in a very large terracotta pot with a mix of top soil a multi purpose soil and added root powder. We also topped the soil with stones to prevent insects and bugs from getting into it! It's placed in the front where it see's sun for the most of the day. I regularly water it and have recently seen a few brightly coloured sprouts, but I'm left wondering am I doing this right? As the tree hasn't really shown much change and is still looking a little under the weather! Here's a picture of the said tree if anyone could give a few pointers on aiding it along/if all looks pretty normal! Thanks, much appreciated!
