Odd growing acer
I bought an acer in the summer, repotted it with mix of compost and ericaceous soil and left it grow. Since it has been repotted it seems to he growing oddly as you can see in the image. Not much growth from the base but really long single branches, is this normal growth?
Any advice would be appreciated. I bought this to keep in a pot for a couple of years and then plant in the ground once I move to a home with a bigger garden!
