Japanese Acer problem?

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 17:00

Yes I totally agree with you Dove, they are acer seeds. I have them all over my acer this time of year - they're so pretty.

The water in the background is the sea! Here's the tree this morning with the tide out. its has only recently been moved to this position. I put it here because it's actually quite sheltered. When I transferred it to the new pot in February the roots seemed fine. Do you think they could have rotted since? There's loads of drainage in the barrel and it's raised off the ground.

I planted a tray of dwarf broad beans in a huge tub and the plants are literally packed with flowers. But now the flowers seem to be turning black too early and dying but there's no signs of any pests although I have given them a good spray. Advice very welcome as I have only grown them once before but I don't remember this happening The dodgy one are at the bottom of the picture...

My acer is about 10 years old and never had a problem until last summer when 2 small sections seemed to be struggling. A so-called garden 'expert' friend strongly and convincingly advised me to cut off the struggling sections and totally against my will I did and regretted it instantly. In February I moved the acer to a much larger 3/4 barrel where it seems very happy except for one thing. There are more sections of what seem to be dead branches and I don't know what to do. I really need expert advice please.The dead sections are not completely bare - some small branches off them have normal growth. They are in random places too. Here it is:

I have a lovely picture of one of the arched canal bridges but its a Tiff file, while all the later stuff are Jpegs. Do you know if you can convert Tiffs to Jpegs?

Hi Fidgetbones, Yes you can. Open the images as a JPEGin Photoshop, then click 'save as' and scroll down to the format you wish to save as. This creates a separate version on your desktop.
