BizzieB. Thanks.

I have 3 pics of my decimated Acer from this year (horse chestnut scale just about killed it and im not sure what to do about it. Trim branches /or just leave till next year.)

Anyhow pics needed so will have to leave it till next week, when everthing is back in order i hope.

Hi Edd
I dont know what thread its on but you showed pics of Acers have you checked those trees for Verticilium Wilt

Sorry Kez for jumping in

 

Hi. Buddyboy.

This is the thread.

I know what the problem is or was (horse-chestnut scale). Its just a matter of what is best to do now, to let the plant recover.

Hi Edd
I do realise you had Horsechestnut scale,you should still check this to be on the safe side its easy to check by a cross cut of a branch, if you go on to the RHS site for Verticilium Wilt they will explain how to do it and how to read the symptoms
I was just a bit concerned when I seen this. I definately hope Iam wrong
cheers

You might be getting some more seeds off me again, the piles building up

Still waiting to get a pic and show you the results of the last lot mark 1963.

Everything seems to be a lot slower growing up here.

Kind regards

Edd.

Mark. you are too kind. I still need to show you this years rainbow  boarder, that is not fully there yet. (up north). Only one pack of seeds failed from you thanks. So guess what pack it was? It took along time to grow and germinate and only got 5 seedlings. Here is a pic of how the seeds (weeds) are doing. can you guess which one? 

(multi coloured speckled leaf and flower???? 

They look like this. Sorry. The main spreading one gets every where.

Edd, don't write that acer off fella, we had one last year that looked worse than yours, this year i re-potted to a bigger one & cut all the dead off & it has bounced back beautifully. 

Edd

While i am here.

Here is my poorly Acer, pics

It has survived the horse chestnut scale but no new growth apart from the root stock that has produced some new green leaf.

Not sure what to do?

Well i do.

Am i right in thinking  i should cut them off, on the root stock as they are probably green?

I left the dead til spring on the one i mentioned in my previous post, forgot to say i moved it too but it's just in another place in a south facing garden so not sure if that had anything to do with it.

Edd you Acer looks much better than when I saw it on the Plants forum, (Growing an acer in container)  

I posted the pics on that thread but cant get them to move over to here. You may want to check it out.

What thread BB. Sorry.

Find your link and right click on it,then copy link address and copy (link address) then paste into your text. 

 

HIGHLIGHT IT and then press the chain link next to the smiley icon button (right) and add link address. it will then drop a load of computer speak at you. Just press submit.

You can actually change the computer speak into written language but i am having problems with that.

Not the written language, nature forgive. Its just language in general! lol

Regards

Edd.

Acer with growth from base of plant, has some long branches (you can just see one to the right) seeking light with leaves at the ends. Pot size 2'x2', the largest I had. It's tucked away in the shrubbery facing east but sheltered from easterly winds, gets dappled sunlight.

Saw your acer on the other thread; a sorry sight! Have to say I think it  has been kept in the wrong size pot ond position  Such a shame it has succumbed to disease. 

Hope it hasn't put you off growing another acer, they are beautiful
