Watering Notes Water deeply if rainfall is less than 1" per week especially for the first 3 years after planting. After roots are established, water deeply in extreme weather situations.
Fertilize Notes According to Missouri Department of Conservation, trees seldom need to be fertilized even when planting. But it may be used to increase growth rates. If the tree is weak or distressed, fertilizer should only be applied sparingly.
Prune Notes Japanese Maples can be pruned at anytime, but winter is best for seeing the bones of the tree. Limit pruning in the first years, allowing the tree to take on a natural form.
