Planting Japanese Maples

Location is something that should be considered. Nearly all weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples can handle growing in the shade or getting morning sun and afternoon shade. For planting weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple trees in the sun it is important to make sure you are getting a selection that can handle full sun in your area. Tamukeyama should be able to handle full sun in most climates. We have plenty of weeping Japanese maples that grow and do well in full sun in Zone 8, including Tamukeyama. When you get to zone 9, many of the Japanese maples should be planted with protection from the hot afternoon sun. There are a few maples we carry that can handle full sun in zone 9.



One of the most important things to remember is that weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples do not like wet feet. This means that heavily boggy areas will need raised beds that allow drainage for the Tamukeyama Japanese maple roots. This can simply be done by raising the area where you will be planting the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple with more soil.



The whole should be dug 1.5 times bigger than than container the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple is in. This extra size is primarily to losen the soil for the roots of your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple which will allow for it to get established quicker. Take the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple out of the container and place it in the whole. The main thing to remember when planting a Tamukeyama Japanese maple is that it should be planted level with where the soil level was in the container. This is important as Tamukeyama Japanese maples planted too deeply do not perform well in the landscape. This means that you will have to put part of the soil that you already dug back into the whole before planting.



People often ask where or not they should condition their soil for the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple. For the most part, you shouldn't. Japanese maples can do well in both sandy soils and clay soils. When you ammend the soil they have to get established in your ammendments and then get established in the exterior soil.


Container Growing Japanese Maples

Weeping Tamukeyama Japanese  maples have a non-invasive root system that makes them ideal for container growing and bonsai culture. This will allow you to bring the ornamental appeal of a weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple to your deck, patio, poolside, and driveway expanding your garden. The concept of how big a weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple will get in a container is similar to that of how big a goldfish will get inside a bowl. A weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple will grow the size container it is put in. A small container will dwarf the size of the tree from the size the weeping  Tamukeyama Japanese maple tree would naturally be in the landscape. Dwarf weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples are often used in containers because they get fairly close to full-size in most containers. The best tip for container growing is a well-drained pot.



Steps:


1. Choose your Weeping Japanese maple based on the location you plan on growing your container grown maple (ex. Sun or shade?). Tamukeyama is an excellent selection as it can handle sun or shade.



2. Select the container you would like to use. The primary thing to look for is good drainage. You may be able to drill extra holes in non-ceramic containers. At least one drain hole is necessary. For containers with only one drain hole, you may consider lining the bottom of the container with 1-2 inches of medium sized gravel to increase drainage.



3. Soil should be selected based on how frequently you plan on watering the plant. For weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples that will be regularly watered by an irrigation system, a soil with more perlite is ideal. An example of this would be a regular bag of miracle grow mix. For weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples that will not be on a regular irrigation system, make sure to add more peat moss to the mixture. This will allow for the maple itself to retain a higher amount of moisture. When adding the soil to the container make sure to keep the root collar and trunk of the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple at the same level it was in it’s previous container. It is also good to leave at least 1/2 inch to 2 inches of the top lip of the container free from soil. This allows for the weeping Japanese maple to be watered effectively.



4. Select a companion plant such as small sedums that can cover the soil-surface to reduce heat and moisture loss for the roots of the maple. When choosing a companion plant it is essential to use only plants with extremely shallow and tiny root systems that will not grow into the roots of the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple.



5. Water frequently based on the finger test. If the soil around your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple feels dry, water.



6. For small containers (smaller than a nursery 3 gallon) check the root system of your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple during the winter every 3 years. If the root ball is getting very thick, trim the root system leaving 3/4 of the root system. Add soil as necessary. For larger containers, you can go much longer without root pruning the roots of your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple. We suggest checking every 7-8 years. For those that do not want to root prune, you can always upgrade your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple to a larger pot size or put the tree in the landscape, however, with a few minutes of root pruning every few years a weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple can stay in any pot for its entire life.


Care of Japanese Maples

*Weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples that have been stressed should be given Super Thrive at recommended doses from the bottle. This can often be purchased at Wal-Mart or your local garden center or department store. This simply gives Weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples the proper nutrients and hormones that will help it heal and recover and help it get back into a growing mode.



Weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples are extremely easy to care for. The less you do the better. Weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples do not like a lot of nitrogen so fertilizers are not necessary. Fertilizers with low amounts of nitrogen can be used in the early spring and mid-summer, however it is not necessary.



Trimming your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple can actually make your tree grow faster. If you trim the smaller branches back leaving larger and thicker branching with buds, your tree will often grow very quickly. This is because you get a cleaner flow or nutrients from weeping Japanese maples that have been trimmed. It is like excersing your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maples. It is best to do this in the early spring right before your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple leafs out. This is typically around the late February to early March time period for us in North Carolina. The main trick for trimming is to never trim more than 45% of your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple tree off. Yes, that means you can trim a weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple heavily. Remember to clean your pruning tools with rubbing alcohol. This helps keep your pruning tools sanitized which helps your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple stay healthy.



Steps for Pruning:


1. Start out by pruning out branches you don't like on your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple. If the branch is larger than 3/4 of an inch in diameter we recommend using a saw. Large branches you don't like only get bigger so it is best to prune them out early in the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple tree's life.



2. Prune out the twiggier smaller branching. Smaller branching only makes smaller branching. This means these will make the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple tree grow slower. By pruning your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple and leaving the large branching you will get a larger tree quicker.



3. Trim out conflicting branching on your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple. This means if two limbs are touching are are too close, one of them should be trimmed out. A lot of pruning is judgement calls. Picking which one stays and which one goes will be a judgement call that only the owner or the pruner can make.



4. If you are trimming an upright selection, make sure to keep one branch as a central leader. This is typically the tallest part of the tree on most upright Japanese maples. If you are trimming a dwarf or a laceleaf weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple, you can trim the weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple to accentuate the natural shape of the tree. This can be done with laceleaf types by trimming your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple to create different levels of branching.



5. Trim out the fishtails. When there are three small branches coming out of the terminal buds on the end of a branch, it is often good to trim out the middle branch. This gives room for the other two branches and allows them have more energy.



While trimming is not necessary, if you follow these steps, your weeping Tamukeyama Japanese maple should grow much quicker for you.
