I couldn't resist, I offered myself an Acer Palmatum one week ago. And now we face one of the hottest heat wave nowadays in Europe.
I noticed some leaves are already dry, some of them are burnt. I water one day on two... and yesterday night I used an atomizer for the leaves.
But I wonder if I could also use the atomizer during the hot daylight. I fear that the droplets may act like magnifiers and burn the leaves all the more... I don't know. Is it a rationnal fear or is it completely unaccurate ? Will a little mist do any good to my Japanese Maple?
