    Thanks D -- I hope I can keep it thriving. Saw that wind-broken branch and just saw red, sigh. I suppose that's the drawback to standard forms when their height takes them over the protection afforded by a garden fence, so I hope putting it against the house gives it a chance to strengthen up those branches a bit! It's so pretty, I'd hate for it to struggle.

    Strong winds here the last couple of days also, but I think M @ROEBUK has had it worse. Good idea moving it nearer the house. Hope it doesn't rub against the guttering . Do keep an eye on that.

    30th May 2022 and after some chat these last few days, I thought I would show how mine is doing.

    I am in love with this tree. The colour, the leaf-shape... and yes, the standard size that means I'm looking up at the branches with the light shining down on them. Beautiful thing!
