Yeah, what do you do on yours? Do you do ground airlayering or wrapping wires around the base? I do the latter to my smaller maples with great success. I have not attempted that on #1 where roots are on one side. LOL Who knows what #2 and #3 look like in there. It sounds like they are probably similar.Some nice material you got there! I like #3! I have gotten stuff from Marc as well. The one thing about his stock is that I have found in almost all cases for the nebari to be unrefined and coarse.
The leaves of all 3 maples. I'm guessing he grew them from seeds many many years ago. It's so neat that they vary quite a bit in appearance and spring color. I know #1 turns bright red in the fall. I wonder what the other two's fall colors will be.
Do you use its own cuttings for grafting or seedlings? I would be interested in finding out whether your partial airlayering takes.I usually resort to doing root grafts in the ones I've had. However, in working on a semi cascade Japanese maple, I instead cut all around a couple of thick roots. Basically they were air layered to try and force finer roots closer to the trunk. We shall see its success since I was not able to go around the entire perimeter of both roots.
