Moved 9 years ago to a property with an 80ft garden which was just like a field full of weeds! My husband has helped me create the garden of my dreams
My 2 home grown maples (grown from seed)
Wow 🤩 👏👏
Thanks @kathy that's the brightest it's ever been! 😊😊
Love the colours of this one 😍❤️
Rather like this year's Acer Seedlings. Just need to keep the slugs at bay and not over water....🙄
This year's Acer Seedlings
@Andreamarie they look really healthy, any tips?
@mch29 - I just keep mine in ericaceous compost and away from slugs!!
@Andreamarie anytime of year better to take cuttings?
@mch these are grown from seed. I have never tried taking cuttings from Acer's so have no idea I'm afraid ☺
Another seed grown doing well 😊
Wow that's great good job 👏🏻👏🏻
Thank you @rosiebug 😊
My favourite home grown acer
This one is different. Love it
Thank you @beckers1974 and @columbiariver 😊
Gawjus colours which variety is it 😍
Thanks @Keely but I'm sorry I've no idea! I collected loads of seeds a few years ago from an assortment of trees but apparently seeds don't grow true to type 😀
Love nature's gifts, @Andreamarie
Unusual pink ,very pretty 💕 😍🍁
Coming on nicely
Are they cuttings?
Oooo looking good. Have you taken cuttings?
How long do you leave these before you know they've taken root? I imagine growth on a top would be a hint. I'm working on one tiny curly maple. I took a piece from my brothers. It's tiny but fine since January.
Hi I've grown these from seed @SylviaDavies @hobnob and @columbiariver 😊 Some are in their 2nd year and some their 3rd year! They grow so slowly!!
Hi Andrea. .might sound like a daft question but where or how did you get seeds for the maples? ?
That's a long process then. You're a very patient woman. These are coming right along then, and about ready to take off for you.
Lol I don't know about patient @columbiariver! @hobnob in September I usually have a week off and visit some gardens. A lot of maples are in seed around then so I collected some of the fallen seeds 😊
Love the #newgrowth
Lovely! #acer #autumnfoliage
Leaves starting to change colour #signsofautumn
One of my seed grown 😊
How long did it take to germinate?
@belindah I planted them last autumn and they germinated early this spring 😊
I would love to try this! Good job, your photos are all gorgeous! Your gardens are stunning!
Thank you @Susanandsteve! Definitely have a go - it's so easy. The hardest bit is preventing the slugs from eating them!! 😊

This one's growing at 3 times the speed of the others!
Lovely pot too,
This year's seedlings
Can never have to many Acers
Just love the colour changes of the leaves
Last year's acer seedling doing well

This year's acer seedlings are popping up despite the slugs having a nibble here and there!
#acer #maple #seedling
Quite pleased with how this home grown one is coming along 😊
Did you do this from a cutting? I managed it once kept meaning to try again 😊
No I collected some seeds and they seem to germinate fairly easily @kathy 😊. Would be interested in trying to do cuttings as well tho
Not a home grown one - but bought for 50p from Morrisons last year in the reduced section 😊
Lovely colour 😀
Coming to life 😊
