    28th April 2021 and the weather has stayed so cold. The coldest April for 60 years in fact. But now my Wills Devine is now cheering me up no end.

    Hi Derek/Luke.

    I believe Junkers is selling it J. I got mine from Lotta Plants in the Netherlands a few years back, but they have stopped trading now..

    What a shame that Lotta stopped selling maples, now stopped trading and the fact we can’t import from NL.
    I had used them, no issues and great service. They told me Dick van der Maat supplied them and had wished to cease the arrangement.

    Yes exactly what I was told J. My contact there was Edwin and he was so very helpful. But perhaps Karan Junker can help with a Will's Devine for you.

    2nd June 2021 and there is just so much interest in my Wills Devine, so I thought I would show it in transition phase this morning.

    13th July 2021 and one of the wettest Sumners ever here in Southern England is making a very happy Will's Devine in my garden, all bodes well for the Autumnal colours this year.

    2nd May 2022 and yesterday's rain has certainly helped my trees leaf out. My Wills devine was very happy this morning.
