For Japanese maples to do right.
High on the low spot is the far edge of their preferred zonage. After a rough spring from which mine did not really recover, a good fall wasn't even an option this year. I am beginning to think I may only get one good year out of every four from them.
No more Japanese maples for me. Four will have to do for now. They have a chance now while there is still room in the garden, before it fills in and before my patience wears out.
