Acer leaf dropping in autumn
Hi, I have 20 specimen acers in my garden and wonder why, each autumn, the majority loose their leaves, but some retain them. This is always the same plants and in spring the new growth covers the dead leaves. Am I doing anything wrong ?.

I don't think you are doing anything wrong. If you have Japanese maples, I know this is a common occurance.
Provide good soil fertility and water management and trust the natural processes.
