Plant Info

These stunning Acers are guaranteed to make an impact in your garden for years to come! Fully hardy even in the coldest winters they lose their leaves in winter, only to burst with incredible colour in spring. The stunning foliage changes colour throughout the year, producing an amazing array of colours in Autumn.

With this incredible collection you get 3 beautiful and highly desirable Acer plants, carefully selected to give a complimentary colour mix. Acers are slow growing, making them ideal for growing in large pots or smaller gardens, where once planted, they are very easy to maintain, and reward you with gorgeous foliage displays for many years. They do well in light shade, as the brightest Summer hot sun can scorch the paler coloured leaves occasionally.

Being slow growing, and difficult to propagate, they are usually much more expensive, but we have a very special offer available. 

Varieties Included:
Acer palmatum 'Atropurpureum' Deep burgundy-purple leaves that turn an even more brilliant shade of bright red in Autumn, just before they fall. The classic red-leaved maple. 
Acer palmatum 'Butterfly': A fantastic variety with lacy, fine foliage. Its leaves are grey green and beautifully marginned with cream tinged with pink.. It forms a 3m bush in 20 years. A must have for any garden!
Acer 'Orange Dream': Bright orange new growth, which fades to yellow in the autumn. It is a great specimen shrub that grows to 3m over 20 years.

+ I ordered a product, not a service from i do not want
+ Service rating : The person I spoke to on the phone was quite offhand and sounded bored, had little knowledge of the product and likely delivery time. Aside from taking the order she was not of great help. If there had been an 'okay' option I would have opted for that. When I had to call to check the trees had not already been delivered and gone astray, the person I spoke to was okay. I later received an email saying the order was despatched but it would have been useful to have had a definite delivery date as I would have preferred to have been at home to receive them.
Product : Plants were as described and in good condition when arrived.
YouGarden Comments
Sorry to hear that the person you spoke to wasn't as helpful as you'd have liked on this occasion. I will follow this up - although this is most out of the ordinary for her... Was there anything in particular that you wanted to know about the plants?

Having a guaranteed delivery date is very expensive for such relatively low value orders - this would add significant costs which would far outweigh the benefits for the vast majority of our customers.

YouGarden Comments
Great to hear that we sorted this promptly and to your satisfaction.

Head of Customer Service
-- Service rating : The plants were dead on arrival but the service and refund I received as a consequence was very good.
Product : Dead on arrival
++ Service rating : Had a minor mix up with delivery dates - I received an automatic email and forgot to allow for week-end. When I phoned to query a young lady explained what had happened and was very kind and helpful . I get a bit mixed up these days so was very grateful for her straightforward info - and the laugh we shared about it !
Product : Expected three twigs as the price was so low, got three small but perfectly formed trees - expecting great things from them.
++ Service rating : Prompt despatch, friendly helpful staff, good value
Product : Arrived in good condition, unfortunately the rabbits stripped two of them of all foliage on the first night after planting out. Have now put wire round them and keeping my fingers crossed that they come good!
+ Service rating : Items left in agreed area and were well packed with clear instructions as to how to plant.
Product : Seem to be OK at the moment and are getting plenty of rain after I had watered them in.
- Service rating : Not value for money.
Product : Not value for money. The size of the plants was very small.
That size cost £2.50 at my local Homebase.
I paid £21.99 for 3 incl postage.

Product : All the plants were in a very poor condition. the leaves were withered. the packaging was terrible.
YouGarden Comments
Sorry to hear that your plants arrived in poor condition. Can you send us some photos of them please? It is normal for Acers' leaves to droop a little in transit, however they usually pick up fine within a week or so.

Product : They were a little smaller than I thought they would be and they are yet to bud so I'm watching and hoping they survive!
