In the Garden: Paul James on Japanese Maple trees; watering, planting, varieties and pruning

TULSA - Be honest, how many of you knew that Japanese Maples aren't just a red-leafed tree?

Gardening expert Paul James with Southwood Landscape and Garden Center talks about this "dynamite specimen" that highlights a landscape.

Paul says where you sight the tree is really important as too much sun isn't good for the Japanese Maple.

How much should you water it? Newly planted ones should get a deep thorough soaking of at least 10 gallons once a week, possibly more.

Paul also told me when the best time to prune them is.

Happy Gardening!
