Help - should my acer palmatum be in acid soil?
Last autumn I planted a Japaneses maple, Acer Palmatum 'Shaina' in my alkaline soil in a shady spot. The label on the plant from the nursery said it was suitable for all types of soil.
I was just following up on maintenance advice on the Shoot Gardening website, and it says plant in acid soil.
I'm panicking now - do I dig it up and pot it in acid soil? Or will the fact that it's still alive and budding mean it will be okay? Perhaps I should fertilise it with ericaceous compost and hope for the best?
Thanks for any advice!
