Acer Palmatum Deshojo

My little deshojo continues to give me great pleasure. It has really done well following re-potting this year and the growth is vigorous and luxuriant. I am trying to encourage it to fill out particularly on the branches half way up the trunk. The colour is beautiful.

I am wondering if I should be considering a larger i.e. wider pot in future years if I let the branches extend.

    Hi Mike nice colour , nice photo ! only a little wider with the branches maybe given the relatively thin trunk , certainly though I would look at reducing the height a bit ? that style of tree can look good in a shallow and wider pot, see you next month

    A wider canopy and a shallower wider pot is the way to go.
