@belindah I am sure it will Belindah. They are so hardy and easy to look after. 👍

I hope so Peter but I'm a bit nervous about acers because last year I had a tiny little one from Morrisons...it survived up until the last frost of the winter but that finished it off.... made me realise I should have put a fleece round it or something...fleeced that it wasn't very robust... ive still got so much to learn!

@belindah I wrap all my plants in pots, in bubblewrap. It has worked well for me. 👍

Do you just wrap the base of the stem and the whole pot or the whole of the tree also Peter? And when would you do it? Mine has already dropped most of its leaves.
