    Sam, I hope you find some of it useful :)

    I find the directed breeding of Japanese maples to be an intiguing subject and one that I have not seen adequately covered in books or even discussed online that much. It would be interesting if those growers and breeders who know much more on the subject than I do would be willing to discuss it.

    Great stuff about the insects. Maybe i could use the net to cover the canopy and yet not have the next reach down to the ground. That way the insects could get inside but i am keeping out any unwanted pollen floating around in the air. Pollen season is terrible around here.

    I cant wait to hear what my uncle has to say as well. His thing is esoteric plants and flowers, but I am sure he knows plenty about this topic.
