hi, my acer was moved last summer from a pot to the ground it was doing well now some of the leaves are curling and dying and it seems to be peeling on its bark any ideas???



Have you planted it in a sunny spot? Because if its a palmatum variety, it won't like that, it likes a fair bit of shade. I'm slightly concerned about the bark symptoms though, that might indicate something rather more serious going on. Any chance of a photograph?

No, no pictures - if you're having difficulty adding them to a question, put them on by using the "Add Photos" at top right of the page - they'll be in your Photos under your profile, and when you've done it, let me know and I'll have a look.

Had look - unfortunately, the thing I'm really interested in seeing is the bark, and the two pics you have of that are blurry, so it's hard to say what I'm looking at. the only one that isn't blurry is too far to tell what's going on with the bark, other than it having some lichen (which is fine) and what appears to be some kind of damage, as if something's rubbed against it.
