Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Acers encounter few problems with pests and diseases. They may be susceptible to aphids, which can be washed off by spraying with soapy water.MORE

Water in well

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly, only in dry spells when needed. You should be able to tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have an established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explained above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavily and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

Full sun to partial shade

Position where the tree will receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight every day during summer and spring. This variety can handle partial shade where it receives its light as dappled shade.MORE

Any soil type except heavy clay

Acer davidii is tolerant of most soils and conditions, including poorly drained soil. It prefers moist, fertile soil.MORE

Feed lightly

When planting, replace half the soil from the planting hole with compost. Your Acer will then appreciate an annual light mulch in spring.MORE

Prune lightly

Acer trees do not require a lot of pruning. Remove any damaged or diseased branches when the tree is in leaf or just after leaf fall. This will prevent bleeding, which although it is not detrimental, can look unsightly. When pruning, make sure to maintain an even framework.MORE
