Great use of the barrel San , the Maple will look gorgeous in that , the orange colour is a nice change , will the leaves darken as it ages do you think ?

thanx amy, the leaves have orange in new growth then go golden as season goes on, so should be lovely, needs some protection in winter if in pot it says, so will wrap it up over winter ;o)

Come on San, spill the beans, How much was it??? eh.

Just trying to lay on the guilt, well we have to treat ourselves sometimes...looks great with a lovely form

This will do well in the tub Sanbaz. I have four in tubs, all different and I paid about the same for one of mine, at a nursery. I paid under four pounds for another at WIlkinson's and under £10 for another at Focus. Just shows you how the prices vary although the WIlkinsons one was small it's very healthy and is a pulmatum, the dark red leaved one.

cheers linda i have a dark red one to and had its a good few years, repotted it last year because it started to look very sad but fine now ;o)
