Caring for your tree

Acer or Maple trees need to be placed in soil that drains well while the location should be exposed to partial through to full sun. They will need regular watering as this helps counteract the effects of the environment that causes scorching, while it is recommended that you fertilise them during the early spring months. Late winter is the time to prune them to remove dead or damaged branches while a layer of mulch will help to retain moisture and minimise the risk of weeds. Acer's do better in Acidic to Neutral soil.

Here is a guide to soil types:

Soil Types:
  • Chalky Soils - very alkaline.  Can be light or heavy
  • Peat Soils - very high in organic matter and moisture
  • Loams - mixtures of clay, sand and silt
  • Silt Soils - Fertile, light and moisture retentive
  • Sandy Soils - light, dry and low in nutrients - often acidic
  • Clay Soils - heavy, high in nutrients. Bake dry in Summer and wet and cold in winter
It is important to improve the quality of soil as this helps give your plants all the nutrients necessary to establish themselves and grow. If you do have doubts about the quality of the soil here are a few tips: Sandy Soil:   In order to thicken the consistency of the soil, it is a good idea to dig in some well rotted manure. If you do not have access to Manure then a good quality multi-purpose compost will also help. We would suggest doing this in the Autumn/Winter months so your garden is ready for Spring. High Acidic Soil:   If your soil has an Acidic level below 6 then you can dig through some lime.   This will help neutralise the area but it is worth checking the levels over a period of time.
  • 0-5  - Acidic Soil
  • 6-8  - Neutral - ideal planting
  • 8-9  - Alkaline
  • 9-14 - Highly Alkaline
Heavy Clay soil:   In order to breakdown the thick clay soil we would suggest digging through well-rotten manure. If you do not have access to manure then a good quality multi-purpose compost will also help. Adding a well-rotted manure or compost is a great winter job.   This will help get the ground ready for Spring.

Common problems for Acer's

Leaf scorch

This is generally caused by environmental stresses such as frosts, drying winds, water logging, drought or intense sun. Keeping the soil moist at all times (free draining soil so it does not water log) will help keep the foliage supple.

Verticillium Wilt

The most common problems Maple encounter are Pseudomonas bacterial infection and vascular diseases produced by the Fusarium and Verticillium fungi. Verticillium wilt is a fungal disease borne in the soil which can impact a range of plants – maples included. This disease can cause maple leaves to yellow, wilt and die back.

Though this problem can arise throughout the year, it is most likely to strike during hot weather in summer.

Pest Problems

Aphids and Horse Chestnut scale are common pest problems for Maples.   Using a general pesticide will help.   Our spectacular acer trees


Branch pruning and training bonsai

The pruning of bonsai is very specific to individual species of tree. In the beginning, a young bonsai would require pruning about once a year in order to form your ultimate shape. Once established, plants require pruning and trimming several times a year to keep them balanced and in shape. Acer's should be hard-pruned in autumn or early winter.   Prune shoots as necessary during the growing season while they are still soft.

Branch training and shaping

  • Branches are coerced into many different arrangements by using wire wrapped along each branch and then moved into place.
  • Untangle any long roots and then remove with sharp scissors
  • You are looking to leave a neat and trimmed root-ball that is flat and circular
  • Place back into its container and use a pencil or chopstick to gently work the compost in and around the roots
  • Water well and keep in a shady, sheltered spot to reduce additional environmental stresses until it has firmly re-established

A couple of fun facts

  • The smallest bonsai tree in the world can fit in the palm of your hand.
  • The most expensive bonsai tree in the world was sold for $1.3 million.
