Hey, just wondering if anyone has purchased the new Boon Manakitivipart DVD on Japanese Maples, and if so what you think about it? I have never watched any of his DVD's myself but have heard good things about the ones he has focusing on Japanese black pines, so this one could seem promising too.

I ordered the combo pack a couple of days ago - I can report back after they arrive.

I've got each of his other DVDs, and I think they are a tremendous resource. I was also fortunate enough to take a repotting workshop with him a few years ago, and will say that he is a really excellent teacher.

Same (great) quality as his jbp videos. I "intercepted" an early bday present and my wife said I could watch 'em already. I've only watched it once, and I was distracted while doing so, but its got a lot of information, ...and probably more that can be gleaned watching a few more times.

Mine arrived yesterday and I watched the styling japanese maples DVD. Lots of good tips in it. It's also nice that the bulk of the video shows Boon starting from scratch with two nursery JMs and shows the development over a year and a half, rather than concentrate on showing work on a specimen tree.
