Spring 2019 meeting - Devon (UK) - 11th and 12th May

This is going to be fabulous weekend visiting two nurseries and the lovely tree collection at Knightshayes in the south west.  New members particularly welcome.  The main focus for the nursery visits will be the smaller maple varieties that so many of us grow in our gardens, so this will be a wonderful opportunity for members to see and discuss a wide range of these wonderful plants.  All visits will be led by owners and/or gardeners.

Autumn Meeting and AGM, 12th and 13th October 2019

12th and 13th October 2019 – UK weekend Meeting in SE England

On the Saturday 12th we shall spend the morning at Maurice Foster's Garden, near Sevenoaks in Kent.  He is a great plantsman and has a great selection of plants and many rare maples in his arboretum.  He will meet us and show us around.  We are still working on an afternoon venue. 

We shall then spend all Sunday at Bedgebury, the National Pinetum, TN17 2SJ.  Apart from the finest collection of conifers in the UK, Bedgebury also has some rare the interesting maples.  We shall be shown around in the morning, hold the AGM around lunchtime and then members will be free to walk around on their own or leave for home.  Full details will be available as soon as possible but in the meantime be sure to put this date in your diary.

The Official Japanese Maple Classification of the Maple Society

The seemingly endless variety of Japanese Maple cultivars can seem confusing to the gardening public.  When purchasing a Japanese Maple in winter it's easy to be unsure what it will look like in spring.  To help with this problem, after several years of experimentation the Maple Society has adopted the classification of Cor van Gelderen of the famous Plantentuin Esveld nursery as the Official Japanese Maple Classification of Maple Society
