Maple isn't an evergreen; during the autumn it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 10 m in height. They tend to develop like erect small trees. The Maple develops like a tree. Feed Maple
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer. Temperatures Maple
The Maple is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round. For a balanced development of the The Maple it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect. Irrigation Maple
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 buckets of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 4-5 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings. Adversity Maple
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden. Substrate Maple
Letís place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
