Have to admit this is my 2nd (or possibly 3rd) try with this, 1st ones died, and this ones foliage is drying up on the bottom leaves too, but my others have always been fine, and I keep them the same?🤔 @pelly

Snap- also have this one too - it has two branches and I noticed one of them has snapped and it’s hanging on by a thread- was wondering if I could propagate it -..... don’t they need acid soil - maybe that’s why it’s dry ... all that stone in your garden is lime - same as mine - chalk based - you’re going to tell me it’s in a pot now ... 🤔😜

😆 Yep, I've always kept Acers in pots!! Not sure about the acid though, probably yes I guess, these 2 new ones have just gone in regular stuff, the big one has been in the same pot for the last 4yrs, it's about 5ft now, really should repot it, but it's way too long ago for me to remember what soil it went in!!😂 @sharonhayden

I had a couple of wobbles early on but it's been fine ever since. My two are in normal compost Sharon @sharonhayden and Jason. I potted my big one on earlier this year and it's done it the world of good 😍

They tolerate a neutral soil, prefer acid but are not supposed to like alkaline soil.
