Acers - Rewarding - easy to grow ?

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 19:10

I love Acers but as Fleurisa says they hate any kind of stress. They don't do very well on my sandy soil and although its fairly sheltered the combination of free draining soil and wind causes the leaves to drop.

Hello all. Thanks Gardengirl - good to be back!! Yviestevie - good to hear you are planting my favourite flower. Planted all my ones from the GW offer. Cant wait til next year to see how they all look! Sounds like everyone has been busy in the garden. I would have loved to be in my garden but wont get an opportunity til Thursday now so no doubt it will be raining.

Good to be back BTW. Had a fantastic summer in the garden, although still seem to be on catch up!!

Hi LesleyK. I agree with you. Lovely to welcome new babies into the world. The birth itself I think is a very personal experience.

Thanks Chicky . Good that they have flower spikes already. They are obviously really happy.

Thanks Chicky. Were the plants of a reasonable size?
