Acer Problem

Posted: 23/07/2012 at 15:47

Many thanks,

I'll have to move them then. The other 2 do have a three foot wall  directly behind for some wind protection though.  The problem one hasn't - it's more exposed.

I planted 3 Acer trees i June this year. Two are doing fine and putting out new growth. The third ( don't know the name, but has green spindly leaves ) has shown no growth at all.  Tips of leaves are turning brown.

They are in anexposed north easterly position though.

Any suggestions please.

Identify Please ?

I've had it for a few years now. Never seen any flowers.

I'll take another photo tomorrow.

Many thanks.

 I have a tree / shrub growing in a container.  It's 3 foot high with an upward growing habit.  The leaf (above) is about 1 inch long by half inch wide.

Any suggestions please ?

Thank you all for the info.

What size to Japanese Azaleas grow to then ?  

Looking at your photos 'Salino' - the flower does look similar but what about the shape of the shrub ?  Mine is in the shape of a mini tree with a single stem about   25mm (1 inch) thick and 150mm (6 inches) high. Is yours the same ?

Identify Please ?

Can anyone tell me what this tree / shrub is please ?  Been growing in a 400mm pot for several years now.  I would like to plant out but don't know anything about it.  It's currently about 600mm high / 400mm spread.

Thanks again for all the info.

I'll have to check my soil type - i think it may be acidic.  Been growing hydrangers on the border for years now.  I've cleared it ready for re-planting now.

Anybody know the variety of cherry blossom 'zoomer44' mentions above ?
