Shrub or tree? what will determine???
Excuse my extreme lack of knowledge here, i've only just started taking an interest in gardening.
I'm after a Japanese acer, and i undersand they can come in the form of trees or large shrubs.....
The ones i've seen in the garden centre are maybe 2 foot tall, but how do i know if they will be trees or large shrub? Is it all down to how i prune them or is it genetical?
I'm hoping to have a tree with eventually a few feet of trunk etc
Some of the acers in the garden centre are single stem and some have 2 coming from the soil. Is this what will determin trees and large shrubs?
Again, excuse my gardening ignorance and lack of knowledge
