Acer Palmatum Garnett AKA Dissectum Garnet
On opening the leaves are a bright red colour, slowly deepening until they change to the beautiful garnet colour, hence its name. Along with other Japanese maples, this small tree could form part of a Japanese-themed garden. Alternatively, keep this tree in a large container and is ideal for a very small patio or terraced garden as it only grows to around 3m high and 2m wide at the 10-year point.

Expect small purple flowers in the spring that become red fruit unless you are colour blind then you just get some other coloured flowers and fruits.

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Planting Acer Palmatum Garnet
Best planted in a sheltered site, will tolerate shade and clay. Try to keep out of full sun as with most palmatum, it is not fatal just affects the colour. The best results come from slightly acidic and well-draining soils. If you experience leaf scorch, this will likely come from a lack of water or too much sun.
A good choice for pots and patios due to the small size.

Pruning Acer Palmatum Garnet
No need to prune this Acer unless you have dead, diseased or crossing-over branches. As it is a slow-growing tree, it is unlikely you will need to give it any maintenance for a very long time.

A popular choice for Bonsai.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season. 

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.

Climate Change
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back. 

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy. 

Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
