Acers

Since  my last report showed some of  the more dramatic improvements in of my young trees  I have been looking at the log book of the rest of my trees.

This last summer I have been very careful to let them have only a limited amount of sunshine, situated in shade or semi shade most of the time and even now in October there is no sign of leaf burn by sun or wind.
