Acer problems

Hi all,

We are not expert gardeners and would appreciate the advice of people that know their stuff!

We have an Acer that has damage to the tips of its leaves. From searching the Internet it seems this could be underwatering or sunburn.

It is in a pot by the way....

    hi Stampie,

    Your photos haven't loaded. Underwatering and sunburn might well be the case, but also consider wind burn too.

    Or indeed , a combination of any of the above.

    Keep it watered and in a sheltered spot out of wind and too much direct sun until it perks up.

    I agree, Acers are notorious for wind burn.  The tips of the leaves go dry and curl up.  They really do need a sheltered spot.

    Hopefully you can see them now!

    I think they're stunning. I'd not worry about them a jot.
