thanks Chip.  I was listening to a talk show on the radio and could be mistaken for the name.

I've never heard of using corn meal. I know corn gluten meal is an organic source of nitrogen and has a weed suppression value. I've found using less fertilizer, especially in the summer and fall, improves the leaves fall color. I use one application of Holly-Tone in the early spring and that's it for the year.

does anyone add corn meal fertilizer around Japanese maples to make the leaves redder?

I’m so glad it helped!

Best luck and love them as they are very tough trees (unless you drown them).

You can't go wrong with morning sun. Laceleafs tend to burn more in full sun. Variegated ones need more shade.

Peonies Along Rock Wall

"Norma, once the peony blooms have faded, we cut them off and then leave the plants alone until early fall. At that time, we cut them down to the ground to prevent any diseases from overwintering."
