Chrissie B & Pansyface,
The Acer has stayed in the same position for many years shielded by a 6ft laurel hedge from the prevailing SW winds. Recently a nearby Oak tree has been severely cut back giving more light to the area and exposing the Acer to the elements a bit more.
Will certainly repot and hopefully the present condition is not terminal.
Thanks for your advice.
I have a 15 year old Acer Palmatum in a 20" wooden tub.
The leaves are drying, curling and dropping.
I have watered and fed regularly.
Any advice on how to revive/save my Acer?
