During this period of the year the The Japanese maple needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 2-3 buckets of water .

Exposure Japanese mapleSole pieno
The Japanese maple should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Japanese maple should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.
