Quote..".don't really agree with all the above, sorry peeps but have strong evidence to suggest Acers can be happily maintained in full sun .... even south facing."
We grow many hundreds of Acers.
I agree they can be very happy in full sun.
But not wind
As said SS, i grow Acers in full sun in a south facing garden ..... 60 / 40 mix of ericaceous and John Innes No3 compost quite happily, high winds definitely a no no due to the plants delicate structure, thanks i currently have my eye on a large standard dissectum Inaba shidare if the price is right .. ? beautiful frame work.
