Autumn Meeting and AGM, 6th and 7th October 2018

This is going to be a fabulous weekend with lots of good and unusual maples to be seen. On Saturday 6th October we will be visiting Thenford Arboretum in Northamptonshire, a little west of Banbury. Currently the arboretum extends to around 70 acres so there is going to be plenty for us to see during the day. On Sunday 7th October we will meet at Evenley Wood Garden only a few miles from Thenford. Set amongst the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, this 60-acre privately owned woodland garden contains a large and notable collection of plants; ranging from unusual trees and shrubs to a wide selection of lilies and other bulbs.

The minutes of the 2017 AGM of The Maple Society have been added to the site.

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
