I've got 2 acres I've recently brought but both are growing completely different, in the first pic my acer is a very nice shape and I'm willing just to leave that as is at the moment.
The 2nd I brought from Morrisons and is supposedly a red wine / bloodgood?? The bottom half is like a bush while the top halve has a few shoots that are just growing vertical & at a quick speed, the tree is also about 3 or 4 different colours as you can see!?
Where would I start with pruning this? & would I do it now or in the winter?
