Q.

Japanese Maple tree dries up each year

Zone NM | Dustydog added on July 15, 2012 | Answered

The leaves dry up and eventually the tree dies. I have it in a big pot, in partial shade with only morning light. What am I doing wrong?

Most thrive in full sun, though some prefer open shade or part sun and shade. Mulching will help insulate the roots. Also, you should be watering deeply twice a week, or daily for a container-grown tree.
