Care & Size Guidance
As Japanese Maples go, ‘Fireglow’ is relatively fast-growing and vigorous, being slightly more upright in habit and also perhaps more tolerant of ordinary garden soil. Ensure it receives partial shade and water regularly, especially in dry periods, as adequate soil moisture is essential for its vitality. While it thrives in partial shade, it can handle some sun exposure. Applying mulch aids in moisture retention and temperature regulation. Shield it from strong winds. Fertilise in spring with balanced nutrients for optimal growth.
