Outdoor

Why We Love It

Add the sun-kissed colours of Acer palmatum 'Katsura' to your outdoor area.

This hardy deciduous plant will bring orange springs, green summers and autumns full of ambery-pink foliage and wing-like red berries.

How to Plant

Acers need some sun, but you'll get the best colour on the leaves in partial shade. It can be grown easily in moist but well-drained soils and won't need much pruning. Just watch out for a lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure which can lead to leaf scorch.

Into the Ground

Before you start planting, make sure your chosen spot is free from weeds and any other debris. Then grab your spade, watering tool, ericaceous compost and fertiliser.

  1. Dig a deep hole roughly twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  2. Mix in a generous amount of soil and ericaceous compost.
  3. Gently spread the roots of the plant and then place inside.
  4. Backfill soil and water generously until well established.
  5. Add fertiliser around the base in spring.

Into a Pot

If you're giving your Acer a pot for its new home, make sure it'll have the space it needs to grow. When you're ready, grab your large pot, ericaceous compost, fertiliser and watering can.

  1. Sprinkle in a mixture of soil and ericaceous compost.
  2. Tease the roots of the plant and then gently place it into the hole.
  3. Backfill soil, firm up and water thoroughly.
  4. Remove dead, damaged or crossing branches in winter.
