Japanese Maple Planting/Care Instructions

Before planting, have your soil tested to see what amendments are needed. Click this link to check your frost dates: Frost Dates. Choose the right time of the year to plant according to your zone. When you receive your tree, soak the root ball in water for 20 minutes upon arrival before planting or potting. Gently break up the root ball. This will help the roots of the plant to grow out into the soil. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of your plant. Fill in the hole tightly with soil to avoid any air pockets. Plant your maple with the root flare above the soil line.

Japanese maples planted in the ground generally do not need fertilizer. Container grown maples can use a bit of slow-release fertilizer. However, variegated cultivars should not be fertilized. Be sure to water your plants until they are established. In addition, pull weeds out when they appear. They take nutrients from the soil.

Young grafted trees will continue to have new growth on the rootstock for several years. If new buds or branches develop on the rootstock, remove them before they grow larger. If a larger branch develops, use sterile pruners to remove. Prune plants as needed to encourage growth. Always sterilize your pruners. If you have trouble keeping up with your pruners, check out our locally hand-made leather pruner holster here.

Lastly, enjoy your Seiryu Japanese Maple and your time in the garden!

Please Note: We currently do not ship plants to Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon or Washington. These states have strict shipping regulations against pests from other states. Extended transit time is also a factor in this decision. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Many factors influence which plants will thrive in a given location. Heat, cold, and elevation are just a few that can have a big impact.
Plants may have been recently potted up and have not completely rooted in. Please grow them in the pots one full growing season, before planting in the ground or potting mix may fall off of the root ball.

Thank you

The tree was shipped quickly and arrived within a couple of days. Much faster than I anticipated. The Seiryu japanese maple was in excellent shape and much larger than I expected. Will purchase from you again!

Healthy-looking plant with small root ball

The plant was well packaged and healthy-looking. That said, this "gallon-sized" plant had very clearly come out of a quart-sized container. The (healthy) root ball was squared off almost perfectly in the smaller size container's shape. While ready for potting up to a gallon size container, it clearly didn't come out of that size container

Hello Petra, these were potted up into gallon pots last fall and they haven't had time to fill out the pot yet. Hope this doesn't discourage you from future purchases.
