Hi Tom

I thought they started red then turned greener later but I haven't got one, just seen them around.

If you don't get an answer on this thread start a new one. Those who know may not return to an old thread

Can any one tell me what this is

I've never had a self set. It's interesting how plants behave differently in our gardens.

My Acanthus mollis is having a splendid year, a bit behind brjomi's but more flowering spikes than ever before

Hi Colleen

most of the decorative acers that are grown in pots are cultivars of Acer palmatum. I googled acer flamingo and it's Acer negundo, a different species. I have plain Acer negundo growing in the garden, 'straggly with no real shape' describes it very well. You can prune it, if you cut it right back it will regrow, but it will never look like the others

Drainage issues

where did you dig your trench at the top or the bottom? Ideally it would need to be at the top top redirect the water away from your plot but wherever it is the water needs somewhere to go. Are there ditches around?

Thanks all. There is always a place in my garden for 'weeds' - unless they don't know who's boss!
