Grafting time again!

Chiyoko said that I could be done for the day when I finished this pile of Honbeni scion wood. Took me about another 6 hours :)

A Japanese Cornel......


In the Plantmad garden today this Japanese dogwood lives in the shadow of it's more well known European cousin Cornus mas but when it come to fruit display the cultivar 'Kintoki' outshines them all!

Acer sikkimense

Acer sikkimense

This Dan Hinkley collection of Acer sikkimense from Vietnam has wonderful wine red leathery foliage. It does fine in an unheated greenhouse but haven't been brave enough to plant one out in the garden yet!
