Half-fill the pot with compost, then remove the acer from its container and position it in the middle of the pot.
Fill in around the plant with fresh compost and firm it in gently, making sure it's planted at the same depth as it was in its original container.
Top the compost with a layer of decorative mulch, such as pebbles or crushed shells - this will help to avoid water loss in summer. Water well.
