    I was thinking I could put it in the shed at night come winter. Someone in a facebook maples group, who is in Scotland, recommends this, as he said he has lost a few over winter.

    ... sounds like a good idea.
    But once again, low temperatures is not really the problem. Put it in the shed when it pours, day or night.

    Glad to see the forum back up!

    Only able to be here for a day, (or not even), back to the city tomorrow. I've been unable to be here since the beginning of the month, so the garden is growing wild. My friend and neighbor (good neighbors are gold!) has been watering the pots, he's a great gardener so they look fine. New plantings out in the garden are suffering a bit, but could be worse, though everything is choked of course. Frustrating. I'll probably be lurking for a while on my phone.

    Here's a few pictures from the end of June:

    The lovely A. campestre 'Pulverentulum'

    A. rubescens 'Red Flamingo'. In the second pic, from left to right in background, A. shirasawanum ssp. shirasawanum, 'Esk Sunset', 'Higasa yama', 'Laciniatum Weirii' (a silver maple, which shed a lot of leaves today in the wind).

    Thank you and welcome to the forum.
    That one is Palmatum Baldsmith, it’s probably my favourite Dissectum..the photo does not do it justice..often this cultivar looks quite unappealing when you see them for sale..but let it settle in for a few years and boom! Here’s a few more of it..the first photo is during Autumn.

    Thank you for the photos! Never heard of this cultivar. So striking. I really like how the colour gradually changes.

    The autumn pic looks like it has been photoshopped but it 100% hasn’t..it goes a lovely strong crimson colour. Pinks reds golds and greens in the spring/summer. This one was purchased from Bartholomew in Bournemouth, whilst a superb quality supplier.. and not a small tree when purchased it was not striking for several years

    just for a fun summer experiment, I inoculated the maples with some arbuscular mycorrhizae, why not? I poked a few holes near the root zone if each maple, exposed the root flares, and dumped the powder.
    Norway maple germinants: Only Mycorrhizae
    Silver Maple : Both mycorrhizae and fertilizer
    Sugar Maple: Only mycorrhizae
    Bigleaf Maple (the leafless trees): both mycorrhizae and fertilizer
    Trident Maple: both mycorrhizae and fertilizer
    Chalk Maple: both mycorrhizae and fertilizer
    I did cover up the mycorrhizae powder with soil and watered heavily, to protect the fungi from the blinding sun here in so cal.

    I couldnt fit all of these images in the first post, so heres the second part:

    This post is very obnoxious, but i felt tempted to post the entire process here, lol.

    also while working at the trident maple, i saw a little green stalk poking out (12th image) this turned out to be a kentucky coffeetree, germinating after i sowed it one year ago. The shells of that species are so tough, either you need acid very hot water, or just plain patience to scarify it.

    Well her Red Dragon never looked so good. On June 30 we laid to rest our 17.5 year old friend (in my profile pic). We purchased our first maple for her and since the day we got it she has loved resting under it. Over 40 maples later she altered our yard and Hearts in so many ways. Back where she belongs by her tree, in her mother of Pearl coloured urn shining brightly, and showing off her tree. Our Ananna will be greatly missed. IMG_5039.jpeg IMG_5038.jpeg
