    Well the good news is my Sooner shipment arrived today. Unfortunately, not until dinner time and we had some family over that we hadn't seen in 3 months but I did get to unbox them. My wife was thrilled with the Gardenia, Allium and Juniper plus she was cool with Grandma Ghost and Oridono Nishiki.

    I've just had a delivery from You garden. Extravaganza and Mystic jewel. Very well packaged and trees in very good health. I've added photos of the box and packing for anyone's future interest.

    Good morning, how is everything going?

    Today Spain is no longer a "state of alarm", although because the World Health Organization says that the virus is still very active, I do not know to what extent it is good news. Anyway. Does not matter. It's summer.

    Today I show a maple, which I think is a Deshojo.

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Monica, glad it's all starting to get back to normal there. As you say it's Summer so let's all look on the bright side. Your photo is a lovely lush green. Just don't know how you do it in that heat.
    We are expecting 30° C next week, so we will perhaps understand a little.
    Have a great Sunday Monica

    Thank you :)

    30 degrees there? Well, water and fertilizer hehe

    Summer can be a challenge, but it's worth the effort.

    Hi D, given the heatwave that's coming in the UK are you taking steps to shelter your acers more than they currently are?

    Good morning Mani. The only thing I will do is to make sure they are all thoroughly watered ( deeply) before the heat comes. I do use rain water that I have harvested through rainy days. As long as there is enough moisture at the roots to draw up they will be fine. But, 'there is always a but'. Extreme temperatures will see some scorching of the tips of the leaves. It is very difficult to avoid above 30°, that's why I'm so impressed with @monicasanchez maples, they look wonderful, don't you agree? I will ensure my small pots are moved to shade.
    If it is very hot I will MIST the leaves late in the evening once the sun has disappeared from my garden. Normally 2200hrs at the earliest. Takes forever and have been known to be doing this in torch light. Lol
    Neighbours haven't commented YET !!! But they know I love my maples.

    So looking at the UK forecast, water deeply on Tuesday evening and consider moving pots to shade.

    Hope that's of some help.

    I've just had a lovely Fathers day gift, a JM Black Lace. I hinted about wanting this after seeing R @dicky5ash photo a couple of weeks ago. Quite a cheeky strong hint tbh. Lol.

    Well I say I received it, that's not entirely true. I received a copy of the order form with my card as the nursery is waiting for the stock to arrive, but it will be posted direct to me very soon.

    When it arrives, I will proudly post photos of my new Fathers day Black Lace.
    As @AlainK said yesterday, some plants have a special meaning. He's so right.

    Voted by my granddaughters as their favourite whilst they were looking at my photos, 'Geisha'. Photo from my garden last year.
    I love the fact they are taking such an interest. They are the future!!!

    Good morning R , only place in UK is Junkers and they do not know if it will be available until this Winter, after they do a stock check.

    I'm very lucky to have this one. Seems like the quantity is low and they go quick.
