    Some really lovely colour this year -- I'm looking forward to repotting it next year and hopefully seeing it get a bit bigger:

    I had to put mine in the shade, the edges of the leaves were beginning to get sunscorched...

    It's funny, my little Aureum has held up remarkably well so far this year, but Jordan in the same spot got absolutely blitzed and needed to be moved to a shadier spot. I expect your sun is stronger than what we get, though!

    Right : we had 28°C yesterday, and we'll probably have 30 today, then perhaps above that in the coming week...

    Ooof! Beautiful holiday weather; not so great for our poor maples though! My thermometer says 23C in the garden but I don't trust it: I was just outside now and it's scorching hot. Fingers crossed all our trees weather the heatwave safely!
