Field maples are ideal for natural looking hedges. With its large leaves that are instantly recogniseable, this tough plant will soon form a screen or windbreak to shelter and protect your garden. Because of the cover it provides, Field maples are also appreciated by nesting birds in the spring. By autumn the foliage starts to turn beautiful shades of golden yellow and fiery red and winged seeds also form. This variety takes well to clipping and can be kept a neat, compact shape. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 30 - 45 cm (12" - 18"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Height Up to 1200cm (472in)
Spread Up to 800cm (315in)

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

Water regularly throughout the growing season until acer trees are well established. Acers require little pruning other than to maintain their shape.
