    I know you’re an ‘esteemed contributor’ with armfuls of knowledge regarding the growing of Japanese Maples, however even my 8 year old daughter knows there aren’t 39 days in April lol ;-)

    Lol, that's my clumsy fingers on the keyboard again. I'll leave it as it is and just do an edit. Thanks for letting me know.

    25th May 2021 and now the leaves have opened to all their splendour. The green maples are wonderful IMO.

    I went to the nursery for a different maple but walked out with a Ki hachijo. I don’t have a lot of room and this will likely be my only palmatum!

    One specimen maple in a garden is as good as a forest full of them. Yours is stunning.
