    I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all the members, from all over the world who sent me messages of support following a really tough time I had at the end of last year. This resulted in me having to move house and face the prospect of me selling my beloved collection of Japanese Maples. Many of you on here helped by sharing this with others and I managed to sell almost half of my collection. This enabled me to afford a hotel whilst I found somewhere else to live.

    I am now in a new house, albeit a rented room in a shared house. The family are lovely and have allowed me to bring what what’s was left of my collection.

    After a few months of shuffling them around I decided to make a ‘walk around’ video of both the back then front garden. I have posted this on YouTube, inspired by Mark @ROEBUK. The video is a little rushed and I am a little edgy but it’s my first attempt and I guess nerves got the better of me. I will share it on here. In case the link doesn’t work it is simply called ‘My Japanese Maple collection’

    Once again thanks to all, sincerely.

    A special thanks to Mark @ROEBUK who bought loads of my trees and to Derek @Acerholic who offered his help and advice throughout my struggle.

    kind regards

    Luke

    'Perfect' Luke. And I'm now sorry I bought a couple of your trees, but they are being looked after very well indeed. Here's to the future.........

    All developing very nicely at this moment, albeit they are all in my workshop until the back end of next week due to the severe weather forecasts over the Easter hols. Glad to have helped you out and nice to hear your settling into your new accommodation.

    Very good video there Luke, should have left your comment box open so people can give you praise for your hard work, and tell you how much they like your video, look forward to you doing more through out the seasons.
