Q.Transplanting A Japanese Maple

Zone 98258 | Anonymous added on October 28, 2021 | Answered

I had a japanese maple growing in a large pot and the pot broke so I replanted it using Miracle Grow Potting mix and it doesn’t seem to be doing so well. I bought Happy Frog for Japanese Maples but I am not sure what I should do? Do I just add it to the pot and if so how much? Or repot again? Help..

It probably is suffering some transplant shock. You can topdress your container plant with the Happy Frog following the amounts they show per height of the plant. Japanese maples need a low level of fertilizer, though, according to the article below. So I wouldn't do it as often as the fertilizer package recommends.

Keep it well watered till it perks up.
