Planting+
What do I need?  Bucket  Trowel  Sand, garden peat and compost  Outdoor pot (optional) First, place the Japanese maple in a bucket of lukewarm water for an hour before planting. Japanese maple grows well in fairly moist, acidic soil that contains a lot of humus. You can improve the quality of the soil with garden peat and compost. Is there a lot of clay in your soil? If so, dig a bit deeper and fill the hole with sand, garden peat and compost first. Japanese maple feel at their best the semi-shade, but they can also live in the sun as long as the soil contains enough water. How do I plant the Japanese maple directly into the ground?  Choose a spot in your garden where the Japanese maple won’t be in the afternoon sun.  Dig a planting hole and loosen up the soil very well.  Place the top of the root ball just below ground level.  Fill the hole with soil and press it firmly into place.  Water the Japanese maple immediately after planting. How do I plant the Japanese maple in a pot?  Remove the Japanese maple from the nursery pot  Choose an outdoor pot that allows excessive water to drain easily.  Add some garden peat and compost to a large pot and place the maple inside.  Give your plant a bit of water right away.  Place the outdoor pot in a shady spot and set it out in the sun for an hour longer each day, which allows the plant to adapt.

How do I care for my Acer? Japanese maples are sturdy trees that require little maintenance. Pruning Japanese maples grow slowly, so you don’t actually need to prune them. If you want to, you can keep it in shape by trimming the longer branches in June. Acers in pots can’t stand full sun: they do not handle it well. If it is very dry outside your maple certainly appreciates a bit of water.
Specifics+
Japanese maples are always really lovely, slow growing maples that will reach 3 metres tall over ten years. Magnificent trees with very attractive leaves that are sure to be noticed both in spring and in autumn. Spring, because of how the fresh green leaves unfold, and autumn because of the remarkable colours of the leaves. Of course this maple will look wonderful in an actual Japanese style garden, but they really look great anywhere. Even as stand-alone trees. And, because they stay small for a long time, they are particularly suitable for the smaller garden, or in a planter on patio or decking.
