Pretty sure it's an Acer - got it for £2 in November when it was a twig in a pot. Getting leafy now though!

@icedance so it is! It's even got those little conical flowers already! Ah well, sad not to have got an acer at bargain price but at least it still goes red in autumn. Thanks for the tip off!

It would have been a great bargain but as you say this does give glorious colour . Mine puts on a stunning show 🙂 although it's no where near where yours is at .. much chillier here ❄️

@icedance I cheated a bit and put in inside under my huge grow light in the spare room. Just hardening it off slowly now. Any tips for success with it? Feed etc?

Ooh sneaky .. nothing really , they prefer a sunny spot for the best colour, one word of warning if you put it in the ground, pruning can make it start to sucker prolifically so you can get them popping up all over ! This is ok as long as you know and can rip them out 🙂
