Synopsis
‘I’m not sure what started my fascination with acers, except that I have always preferred shrubs and trees to just flowers which are, at best, transient,’ explains Ray. ‘Also, I am a painter, and that artistic streak comes out in gardening, trying to create pictures, and recognising what looks right.’ Of course, he concedes, mistakes are made along the way as plants let it be known when they are unhappy. ‘But that’s the whole point of gardening — it has no finite end, and forever keeps you interested and engaged.’
