Growing Acer from Seeds

Rob O\’Halloran asked 6 years ago

Our red acer has seeds growing at the moment it is May 25th 2015, first time for this tree, when i can take them and try to grow new trees from them? Appreciate any help.

The seeds are not mature now.

Wait until they fatten up and shed naturally in autumn.

Sow immediately in seed trays of compost and leave outside for winter, protected from mice, and take into a greenhouse or warm window sill in spring to germinate.
