Toto's survival guide

The friendliest wood spirit

His full name is Totoro, but his friends call him Toto. He lives deep in the forest in the hollow of a large camphor tree—to find him, just follow the forest spirits. Toto is usually slumbering on a bed of flowers, and occasionally mumbles in his sleep. Don’t be fooled by his dopey demeanor; he’s loyal, observant, and will always let you take his seat on the catbus.

The Japanese Maple, or Acer Palmatum, is a perfect addition to your garden to add stunning colour and texture. This tree can also be potted indoors given that it receives ample room to grow, as they can reach heights of 7 feet. Known as the Full Moon Maple or Green Cascade, this variety has a weeping form and turns yellow, orange, and red in the fall. This Japanese Maple doesn’t require a ton of TLC—be sure to only fertilize in the spring, and keep it in a full sun/partial shade location for best results!
