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.

++ Service rating : I rated You Garden excellent because of their customer service. The original order arrived damaged and the varieties not labeled. I contacted You Garden and explained my dissapointment, to which they expressed supreme, obviously not a usual occurrence. I was immediately assured that my order would be replaced and delivered in the correct state. It was three days later and in perfect condition.Excellent service. Well done You Garden.

++ Service rating : Very speedy service and package very good
Product : The plant are in very good condition , can't wait for the spring , thank you
+ Product arrived quickly
++ Service rating : Very impressed with the service .. from the date order received to the date plants arrived, all handled very efficiently, also liked the option to track en route. High standard of packaging involved with helpful instructions re aftercare enclosed.
Product : Plants look very healthy, looking forward to their progress particularly during their first season.
++ Service rating : The Maples were certainly good value. Coming in small pots with moist compost.
I can't comment on the fish blood & bone as I've not used it yet but it was in a plastic bucket container.
Perhaps some good quality plastic pots and a small bag of suitable compost could have been offered with instructions for potting on.
But then I used to own a small Spar store and we all ways wanted to sell more.
The items were well packed and arrived quickly. Everything was as ordered.
Excellent service.

+ Had to contact customer services because we hadn't received our plants so they promptly sent us a replacement the plants look goid
+ Service rating : Good value and excellent service
Product : Packing could have been better, plant labels fell out of the pot so impossible to relabel until plat has grown
+ Service rating : Arrived when elected.
Product : Looks ok now. Let's hope in 6 months that they survive.
NA Service rating : Came on time
Product : Bare plants at present
+ Service rating : Very clear and helpful advice.
Product : It is really difficult to say as it is the winter - they look dead but are deciduous! I will know more in the spring! They do look beautiful.
++ Very quick
NA Although the service was good, it was unfortunate that because of the way the plants had been packed, the soil had spilt out of 2 of the pots causing the labels to fall out so I can;t tell which is which until they come into leaf.
+ Service rating : Prompt delivery
Product : Have not yet planted them up but they look good

- Service rating : Packaging not very good. Potting medium was very dry. Plants all looked a bit battered.
Product : We hope the Acers survive! Soil was dry and had come out of pots and was loose in box. Would have benefitted by some wrapping around individual pots to contain soil, plastic holders too flimsy. Not robust enough for travel!

YouGarden Comments
Don't worry, Acers are deciduous plants so they will lose their leaves, it may be that this one is just a little more sensitive than the others.

Let us know how it gets on!
+ The trees were in an appropriate size plastic container but this had been folded to squeeze it into too small a box. One tree was badly damaged and I trimmed some branches. I could have cried at seeing such poor care of these trees.

The purpureum was half the size of the other two and within a few days some of the leaves developed spots and withered at the ends.

I am sorry to hear that. On investigation, it appears that your order wasn't included in the daily report we receive from the courier. I trust you are now in safe receipt?

++ Service rating : This is my first order from you so I have nothing to compare with.

+ Service rating : Easy to order and quick delivery
Product : Smaller than expected
++ Service rating : This was the second time I have used YouGarden and they continue to impress. My delivery was well packaged with due care and attention to the welfare of the Acers inside. The prices are great. The choice is vast and I have little doubt that this latest purchase will be as successful as my last one.

+ 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.

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!

That size cost £2.50 at my local Homebase.

Not sure what type of Acer you found at your local store, however we think that these plants are excellent value compared with equivalent plants that are available. Sorry to hear that you don't agree.

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.
