We bought a two foot tall Japanese Maple from you last month. Now I notice the ends of the leaves for about 3/8 of an inch are turning brown and appear to be dead. What could be wrong or is this normal?

I could be a couple of things…make sure you haven’t buried the stem too deep.  Get under there and brush the soil back away from the trunk until you find the original soil that the plant can in and keep it at that level.  Burying the trunk and piling mulch against the bark of the plant will slowly strangle the plants.  More on that HERE.  It could also be getting drowned through overwatering or suffering from dryness.
