I've moved them before Paul - prune it back a bit so that the roots don't struggle and get as big a rootball on it as you can. Keep an eye on it re the weather etc until it's established.
Melspade- I have the same problem! I'm doing a lot of dismantling and constructing in this new garden and at times I was 'scunnered' - good Scots expression! I'm beginning to see results now and getting plants in which keeps me going. Lots of good supportive people on here and that helps enormously too

Horse chestnuts look terrific in the autumn gina.
Have you got a lot of wind? I'll rephrase that...
Are the Acers a bit exposed? Sun's still strong at this time of year too so it might be a combination of those.
Daniel's hoping to have the site all sorted out by end of today so don't give up. It's such a busy forum so things will go wrong from time to time. Don't let it put you off lily. Lots of very experienced posters on here to give valuable advice and help.
Eh? This is a gardening forum john. Sheds play a large part in gardens- but the forum's not for advertising and you'll be reported if you do.
Thanks Daniel. Lots of new people joining so it would be ashame if they got fed up and went elsewhere. The forum has been really good and very helpful for so many - myself included.
Think you're right Marion. The wild rowans in my area here are looking really pretty- laden with berries. Trees are all turning like mad and lots of leaves down now. I don't really have any deciduous trees or shrubs here yet and most of the people living round here don't seem to have much interest in gardens sadly, so I really want to get some wildlife and interest in. I may get an Acer at some point but it'll go in a pot so that I can take it when I move again!
So is it more like a choux bun fidget rather than doughnut texture? I love those - ones with coffee icing are particularly scrumptious!
I've had to resort to ironing as the weather's very dreary. Still, indoor jobs need doing so will do them with occasional tea drinking.
The only thing I can suggest is to either pot them up - you can buy black buckets for a pound in diy stores and put holes in them - or if you have a little spare area of ground somewhere in your garden, you could just pop them all in there, like a nursery type bed. I've done that with some daffs in this garden as they were along the side wall where I intend putting an extension. Didn't want to just chuck them out.
