Morning Milly and welcome
acid soil is best for your acer but neutral is fine. Increasingly, I am doubting some of the advice on the internet; conflicting advice is confusing
for a pot I would use a john innes soil based ericaceous soil
i would not use a liquid feed ..I prefer to use an organic granular feed like fish blood and bone in spring.
a good well balanced container too......as wide at top as bottom ....to help with stability.
shelter from coldest winds and draughts is important esp in spring when new growth is starting.
