    Dose Maplewood nursery still exist? I might write them asking for some scions of Acer palmatum 'Globosum'. This is the address i have, can someone confirm it?

    To my knowledge it does. I wanted to visit there last fall, but time ran short. There is hardly time to make a day trip to the Eugene area and still have time to stop for a few hours on the way home through Roseburg. This spring I hope to set aside a day just to visit there.

    I it indeed is still intact, I will take some photos and see what information is available about its current status.

    That is the address I have also.

    I have not have any luck trying to schedule time to visit the nursery. At the time I called last year, Mr. Wilson was quite busy with a day job and had limited or no time to make the garden available to me in my proposed time frame. My impression is that he does not regularly receive visitors to what is now more of a private garden than a nursery.

    I still do not know what condition the former nursery is in or what the plans are for it if any. I did talk to a friend who told me a second hand story about someone in maples he knew who used to visit Maplewood yearly after J.D.'s passing until Mr. Wilson no longer made it convenient to visit. The visits to see the garden also included the gathering of scion wood.

    Good luck and I hope you are able to see the garden. If you are flexible in you time frame I am sure you can work out a visit.
