Cest la vie Sheilabub, it couldve been much worse, I nearly lost my Acer Garnet ive been growing for 5plus years. Still not sure it can be rescued.

Black beauty looks lovely. I bought 3 of Dark Reiter recently, similar colour of leaf.

Thanks Karen. That reminds me . . . I'd forgotten I bought a Reiter last year, must go and search for it . . . love anything with a dark leaf!

Yes, I love them but they are hard to see sometimes. You have highlighted it beautifully here with the pink next to it! lovely! Last time I was in my big GC I looked at the books and there were two or three dedicated to black plants. They are very trendy at the moment aren't they. I love them, but I find they are quite tricky to use in the garden as they fade into the background so easily. I imagine in a pale gravel garden they would be absolutely stunning!

Thanks Yorks. You're very generous with your comments Karen . . . more luck than judgement I think!

They would look good in that front bit you just did Karen, with all the pebbles etc.

Yes they would, that's true!
