Maple seeds   2 comments

Tree seeds, a miracle of nature. I have never been one to grow many seeds of anything except vegetables. I started some pine seeds one year and they did OK but molded after about 6 months. Recently I ordered 600 trident maple seeds. I am not sure if I need that many but I figured if I keep them dry and in the fridge they should last many years.

This year I have collected the seeds of my coral bark maples. ( Acer palmatum “sango kaku” ). I have about 50 seeds and will try some of these when I sow the tridents.

I plan on useing a seed matt to get them going in my garage, then transfer them to pots later down the road.

  1. how did the sango kaku seeds do? do they have coral bark? I just ordered some online because no trees go through customs so I stratified the seeds yesterday and don’t want to get my expectations too high.

  2. I forgot to plant them. The seeds have already set on the two trees I have in my back yard. I will try and remember this year to plant them.
