Japanese Maples

I am in love with Japanese Maples and their beautiful colouring in the garden, especially during Autumn when their leaves change and they are a riot of different hues. So far I have planted 7 varieites in the past year. The one in this photo to the right is called "Bloodgood".

I would love a garden like this...probably takes a lot of time to keep it this way so I'll just admire yours...

Thanks for the comments guys. Er, it takes a bit of time to keep the weeds at bay, but on the whole I am not a slave to it Skippy, LOL. The most I work is in Autumn when I have to cut back the perennials and give it a good tidy before Winter. Other than that it's the mowing and weeding that takes up most of the time. I do it all, good way to keep fit. :-)

Amazing garden. You must be in Spring now so looking forward to your pics keeping us going through our winter.

Yes, it's Spring till end of November and then our Summer starts. I have to take some cuttings as this is the best time (+ Autumn) to propogate plants. Instead of using hormone rooting powder someone suggested I use some honey. So I'll be giving that a go and see how it works.
