When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

For its first few years this struggled a bit but in today’s sunshine it was looking fabulous ☀️💗 #acer-palmatum-sangokaku #acer-sango-kaku #acer-senkaki #coral-bark-maple

Thanks Joan, me too. And this one is especially lovely: gorgeous stems, beautiful autumn colour and slow growing 👌 @joannie.a

Yes I thought you had Jane. It’s a lovely one and I’m so happy mine has settled in. I did actually move it a year or so after I got it. I think it was catching the wind or possibly a mole had disturbed its roots. Either way it’s happier now 😊 @pelly

Really hard to capture the colour of this acer - can you even see it? - especially as the teasel next to it is almost twice its size 💗

Mine too Pauline. It’s a few years old but did don’t grow at all for the first three years so I moved it. Not far but it seems happier I think 🤔🤞

About the 60s? Of course they say if you can remember them you weren’t there. 🎶I was born, born in the 60s 🎶 @columbiariver

It's strange as I actually haven't moved it far at all, but it is definitely much happier. I had thought it was a goner @pelly @juliesgarden

This is still not entirely happy but better than it was in its last home, which was a few feet away...
