Ok lets go! Here in nothern sweden it have been a wet summer,more rain than usual and lower temperatures than normal. And to top it off a long period of hard wind after the frost ,and lice during the summer..... So how are the acers doing? A few was suffering from the late frost in june and has not grown at all.(triflorum,shirasawanum aureum and a shirasawanum and acer japonicum???? )All of them is in full vÃgor but no new growt. Acer palmatum atropurpureum recovered well from spring deer damage, 20 cm new growt. Acer Tegmentosum 1 m new growt! The pseudoplatanus "eskimo sunset" was hit hard by lice when leafing out,before i noticed and could intervene,5 cm new growt. Acer palmatum dissectum "filligree" suddenly lost all leafs after spring leaf out (i think i forgot to water..)new leafs during summer and doing fine now. The rest of the palmatums has been growing between 5 cm to 10 cm, acer japonicum aconitifolum 20 cm. ItÂ´s a constant struggle,but next summer!!
