Why has my Acer developed very shrivelled leaves this year? I have had it about 12 years and it is in a pot. this has never happened before. Ant ideas?

Maybe it's gotten too dry as it's growing bigger -is it the same pot? Or drainage problems have developed.

Thank you for your message I think that maybe the problem! So disappointing! It is in the same pot and has been for the last 12 years, and it has been beautiful. I am moving soon and will take it with me and feed and keep it well watered and hope for the best. Thank you again

Woops I haven't used this website before and I understood I was to get an email when someone replied! So I have just discovered I got that wrong! Soz!

@athol - yes you can get an email when someone replies (in this Ask a Question forum only, but not the other forums is my understanding). When you post the question in Ask a Question there are two check boxes underneath the message box. They appear to be checked by default so do you remember if you unchecked the box for email notifications of responses? You'd have had to do it all three times though, if you weren't notified of any of the replies.

Also, If you haven't repotted in 12 years, its time. Wait for the Acer to get to its deepest sleep (probably January) and repot in some nice loamy potting soil.

In the meantime, the water needs to be getting to the center of the rootball. If the pot is small enough, soaking the whole pot to the rim until all the bubbles have stopped will help rehydrate that potting soil.
