Baby Trees

I found two little Japanese maple trees (1") in my flower bed last spring. I put them in a flower pot and they are now about 7" tall. What should I do with them this winter? I live in middle Tennessee.


Hello Amanda, Japanese maple trees can be grown in containers. You can leave it outside, but in a protected area. If you experience any heavy snow or ice, you might want to cover the sapling. If the pot is a large 18 maybe 24”, the tree should grow in it for a few years. Be sure to monitor the watering and fertilizing of your plant. Japanese maples don’t need a huge amount of water as they age.

Sincerely, Cheryl Jones
