Lovely colours - and all self seeders you say?  Great fun being able to name them yourself - I like Rich Toffee much better than all the Japanese names that mine seem to have

Yes, Chicky.  One of my jobs at the Botanic Garden where I was a volunteer gardener for six years was to weed out the seedlings round the acers of which there were hundreds.  I asked if I could take a few home as they were just being put in the compost and was given permission.  all five grew.  I had chosen ones which seemed to have different leaves but the results have been beyond my expectations.

For those who said nice things about my acer, this is an update.

Summer coat.


 Autumn coat.

Thanks....I slipped up slightly, the last pic (in all its autumn glory) wasn't the previous one I posted and really is not such a good/clear shot  same acer though.

Brumball - No dead stuff in there, what seems to be, are support sticks.

David fantastic colours, too windy here for Acers. I envy you.

Can't grow acers here either, hot summers, windy, cold winters and limestone.

What gorgeous colours acers are.

My baby acers are still hanging on to their leaves despite another very windy weekend in Bristol.

Thanks, Dove....the trees are so tall, the view you see is the best compromise I could find.
Btw, I have me Camera Corner thread back to normal.

Almost looks like it has been swallowed !!  Perfect hosta - slugs obviously effectively repelled
