New gardener; growing on my windowsill in my London flat. I'm on a waiting list for an allotment and taking over a friends greenhouse to grow anything

Japanese Maple has flourished. Would be grateful for any tips on care for this. Just repotted it today and took off a bit of growth. # London #japanesemaple

Japanese Maple for the greenhouse! My partner is a huge fan, we have seen many beautiful trees growing in West London but would love our own for the garden! Any tips and advice on care would be great!! #London #greenhouse #japanesemaple

You're trying to #bonsai it?

@brightcolours yes. This is my partners grow. I don't know anything about them. I'd love it to be bigger

Then I think you need to buy a Japanese maple for yourself! Then yours can grow into a large specimen tree and this one will be nurtured as a bonsai.
