Adding Japanese Maples to My Woodland Grove

This season's tree-planting project continues at my Bedford, New York farm with a group of young, healthy Japanese maples.

Every year, I try to add a few interesting and rare trees to my Japanese Maple Grove. I love this area of the farm and my gardeners, outdoor grounds crew, and I have been working hard to keep it looking its best. Recently, I purchased 27 more of these remarkable trees to add to my collection. All the new specimens came from Summer Hill Nursery in Madison, Connecticut. With so many cultivated Japanese maple varieties available, one can find suitable specimens to grow beautifully in sun, shade, containers, and even bonsai. These trees provide countless variations in size, leaf shape, and color - I am looking so forward to watching them develop in this shady woodland.
