    Wonderful maples and a wonderful garden you have. And yes, ours are happier after the rain also.

    I see you are also in Hampshire. Which specialists do you buy from?
    I use Barthelemys in Wimborne, also RHS Wisley is pretty good and have travelled further afield when after something different.

    Yes only a couple hundred yards from Roy Lancaster. We have purchased from many tbh. It always depends on what is available and what is on our wanted list. For small grafts we have had a great deal of success from Lotta plants Netherlands. We have also purchased from Junkers,Wisley,Mallet Court,Hippopotering. Unfortunately there is nothing really in Hampshire that specialises. We have visited Barthelemy's but he had nothing we hadn't already been growing that was on our list. Shame we don't have a Buckholtz locally!!! We are very fond of the Ghost series. We are hoping to take part in the seed scheme run by the maple society this year, not sure who to pay for this yet though.

    I’ve been to Mallet Court, Mr Harris certainly knows his Maples.
    I used to drive up to Chris Pattison once or twice a year, well worth the trip, but he has now retired albeit the website is still up and running.
    I’ve recently bought 20 grafts from Lotta plants, great choice.
    Wisley is really good for specimens as well as young plants.
    I managed to convince Hippo to sell me one of their show plants and picked it up from the next show they did.
    I’ve been using Barthelemys for years and know Wendy and Mathew well.
    They have let me look around there other polytunnels and storage areas where they have some old well grown hard to find Maples.

    Not that our website is ever very up-to-date, but it's too early to register for the seed distribution. As a member you pay only for postage. Robin, our volunteer who sorts and sends the seed -- quite an undertaking! -- has an article in the current newsletter where the process is detailed.

    Yes Mr. Harris (Mallet Ct) is really a luminary, and a fabulous resource. I was very disappointed to miss the recent visit to his nursery with the society, but I wasn't available. The group also visited Karan Junker.

    Lovely Maples! What is the pink Acer in the third photo?
