    If you want to put some like this on the Maples forum J, with perhaps a thread title that catches peoples eye. Then let's see what interest it brings. I think initially it will be about collating nurseries. I found one the other day tbh that I will add to the thread.
    Would you like to start it as it's your idea. I think people hear enough from me !!!

    Will do. As for hearing to much from you, forums wouldn’t exist without the hard work of others like yourself.
    I run 2 forums with the help of appointed mods and I know the unseen work involved.

    I don't know if I get any say in how the Maples folks do things, but the other forum areas have nursery recommendations in the Resource Discussion Thread, which would be this thread. And then Acerholic, you have just one place to look to find what needs to go into the Resource files for
    Maples: Nurseries Specializing in Maples in North America
    and
    Maples: Nurseries Specializing in Maples Outside of North America

    I don't know what to do about threads where you're publicizing who is carrying what this year. I guess your suggestion about having a thread in the main area works for that.

    Thanks Wendy, I have just replied to you on a PM. No need to go into formalities here. But suffice to say it is all in hand.

    I’m not sure where to post the Acer family list of Nikko Botanical Garden. So I’ll post here.

    Nikko Botanical Garden is a sister Botanical Garden of Koishikawa Botanical Garden. They had shared membership. But Nikko is a little too far so I have visited there only once.
    But it has a quite good website of the botanical lists.

    日光植物園のカエデ (u-tokyo.ac.jp)

    This is the original in Japanese. Google Translate makes Japanese names mixture of scientific names. So I choose original one. If you can’t translate automatically, please tell me.

    Koishikawa Botanical Garden also have more than 10 kinds of Acer. But I can’t find the list.

    I stumbled upon the following Canadian site which sells Japanese maples and thought perhaps someone knowledgeable may want to check it out: Japanese Maples – Glad Gardens.

    Looks a good site for our Canadian friends here. Quite high prices, but tbh a lot of maples are these days.

    I've had this website in my bookmarks for years, and I don't think I mentioned it here : Plantes du Japon (home page)

    It might be of some interest not only for maple lovers, but also for those looking for info on native plants. It's in French, but nowadays, with online translation tools, that shouldn't be a problem.

    The terminology is a bit outdated, but it's full of very interesting info on Japanese names, and the location of native maples in Japan :

    Plantes du Japon ("ACERACEES")

    PS : the "navigation" is not that easy to find what you want...

    Just seen this M, I have no update for you. It is still, showing that it is unreachable.

    I hope he's not dead like the other Japanese fellow whose site disappeared. Hopefully just changed URL.

    Yano is alive and as well as can be hoped, for someone who takes care of as many maples as he!
