Mine has never looked as good as this and I'm running out of places to try putting it.

I think it has definitely been 'The Autumn of the Acer!'

Magnificent colours.

I agree with Annie. mine looks dreadful. I'm leaving it to see if another year will establish it. But my Sango Kaku has come out of the soil and gone in to a pot on the house wall. It had died back quite badly.

Ann, this is against the house wall and faces North, well out of the wind too!

I agree Wildrose, so many different tints to them.

Karen it doesn't get much sunshine either!

Ours improved a lot when we found it a very sheltered spot with only dappled sunlight. It had been in a number of less successful places before that!

It's all trial and error, this gardening lark!

Shirley I potted up the grasses last weekend and the Gardener's garters is already sending up new leaves!

Well done Shirley, have pruned ours, because it was getting too large..

That's good to hear Ann. Some say it's a thug but I have never found it to be so in my garden.

Ooh Dotty, I hope I'll be able to say that one day!

I think clay keeps most things under control

Shirley you will, they grow much faster than some of the other varieties...

Dotty, I shall have to keep it under control!
