How do you get so wonderful colours? Do you keep them in full sun? My maples never shine like those!

Aleksa,

I do nothing. The colors come by themselves. They come different every year. I take them as they come.

Hi Walter,

The fall colors on your maples are stunning... A quick question, do you use anything special to prevent mildew ? I have two field maples that always have mildew which prevents them to get colors like yours...

regards, René

Rene,

I rarely have any mildew on them. I do nothing against it other than keeping the trees happy.
