Commonly Asked Questions

Will I get an Autumn colour change with Acer Palmatum Viridis?

Yes, Acer Palmatum Viridis has a stunning Autumn transformation; their green foliage transforms into a spectacular vibrant red .Please note that colour change can differ yearly; it will also depend on your plant’s health and the plants.


Are Viridis 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; just sit back and enjoy the glorious natural weeping 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.
