    Great to see the forums up and operating, and looking great. Hey you can drag and drop pics too!
    Thanks again to UBC and staff.

    Here are some colors from A. capillipes 'Honeydew' and A. japonicum 'Emmet's Pumkin.' Not taken today it is nasty and raining hard, plus has been very cold for the season...

    Nice to see the forum up and running again, must admit it's looking very slick and modern now, like all the new options and larger print format easier to read for me!!
    emery like the 'Emmets pumpkin very pretty wouldn't mind one of those are they easy to come by?
    Hope every one is having a very colourful Autumn at the moment , my trees are in full flow now and are showing amazing colours at present with alot of the older trees just waiting to start to change.

    Up loaded one picture of a Hogyoku just to see how easy it is to do now, very straight forward and simple.

    @ROEBUK I got mine from Esveld, I think it's a fairly new cultivar though. Seems very vigorous so far.

    Sad to say I've had to cut about half of my Hogyoku last week, wilt from extreme conditions this summer...

    Emery,
    Your Emmet's Pumpkin is gorgeous!! Moving it from my "maybe" list to my "must have" list!!
    Would you please post your pic under the Maple Gallery for Emmet's Pumpkin? The pics there are rather bland compared to yours!

    Sorry to hear that was this down to hot and sunny conditions? or something totally different,would be interested to know so i could keep an eye on mine and what to look for in the future.
    Another one of my Hogyokus but in the ground and just starting to turn nicely now, another week to ten days and this should have gone the lovely orange colour which they are known for.

    I'm guessing it was that. We had quite a drought with very hot conditions off and on, but mostly it was dry as dry. Because this tree was very well established and hadn't shown any leaf stress it didn't get watered. But I guess it was all too much and by the end of August the unmistakable signs of verticillium were visible. I just hope I've taken off enough. It certainly is unbalanced looking now though! Too bad as I hadn't seen wilt with this one before, it was a good healthy grower.

    We'll see how it recovers next year...

    cheers,

    Must say that i do exactly the same with around eight of my trees which have been in the ground since i started, that is i don't tend to water them when i water all the others that surround them!! just seem to think that they look ok so I've no need to water them, and then i only water them when i can be bothered to get the hosepipe out, all the other trees are watered by hand with a can!!!

    Recently i lifted a large Vitifolium and the week prior to this it rained solidly for two days,i thought that when i dug the tree up the ground would be very muddy and claggy and messy ,but i was amazed to see just how dry the root ball was after all the rain we had.

    Hope yours recovers.
