Japanese Maples can best be planted from March until the beginning of October. In this period the soil is warmer and the plants can root well. In a planter this plant does not require special potting soil. Japanese maples are strong plants but in a windy location the leaves can be damaged. So put the Acer in a sheltered place. The plant prefers a spot in the semi-shade, preferably not too much direct sunlight. Too much direct sunlight can cause the roots to dry out, which can lead to leaf loss and burning. A Japanese Maple is not evergreen, which means that it loses its leaves in winter. However, the plant is very hardy and will sprout again in March with beautiful new leaves.
The plants have a height of 25 to 40 cm on delivery (measured incl. Pot). The plants are supplied in pots with a diameter of 10.5 cm.
