Commonly Asked Questions

Will the foliage on Acer Palmatum Osakazuki change during Autumn?

Yes, Osakazuki has a stunning Autumn transformation; their green foliage transforms into a spectacular vibrant red.


Are Osakazuki maples suitable for planter pots?

Yes, they are. Be sure you are selecting a pot with plenty of room for the plant to grow; you may find that the pot size needs to be increased in a few years. Please note that, like with all plants, they will grow quicker in the ground than in a pot; however, if you have a small garden, courtyard, or paved area or are in a rental property, this can be a good thing, depending on your needs. Please ensure you use quality soil in your pot, slow-release fertilisers, and keep up the watering, as pots dry out more quickly than ground planting.


Do I need to prune my Japanese Maple?

There is no need to prune your Maple; sit back and enjoy the glorious natural form of your Japanese Maple. Pruning can be effective if you want to open your Maple into a specific canopy shape. Otherwise, it’s best left alone to Mother Nature.
