Acer Palmatum Blood Good
It needs a sheltered spot, away from strong winds or scorching sun, though its leaf colour is best enjoyed in a sunny position. Add a top-dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of a newly planted tree in late spring and keep well watered. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
