10 Japanese Red Maple Seeds Heirloom Acer Palmatum Bonsai or Landscape Seeds

Product Features

  • You might choose Japanese Maple trees as part of your overall landscaping design, but you need to make sure when planting that you make a few landscaping choices that ensure your Japanese maple tree grows healthy and tall. They are beautiful trees rich in color during season and hardy enough to withstand cold temperatures in the off-season, USDA zones 5-8
  • Location When selecting a spot in your yard for your new Japanese maple, you need to keep in mind that if you live in a cooler climate, you must choose a full-sun area. If you live in a hot climate, choose a light shade area. You also don’t want to choose an area that will expose the tree to harsh winter winds. Plant the tree where there will be adequate air circulation to avoid fungal diseases.
  • Germination tips: Soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours. Change the water, using more warm water, soak them for another 24 hours, change the water and soak them for another 24 hours. So that’s a total of 72 hours of soaking.
  • 2. After soaking, spread the seeds out in a row on a paper towel then fold the towel over top of the seeds a couple of times. Dampen the paper towel and place it in a plastic bag and place the bag in the refrigerator for 90 days, it is a good idea to write the date on the plastic bag. Do not allow the towel to dry out, after 90 days start checking on the seeds daily for germination.
  • 3. The seeds will sprout inside of the paper towel and you can pick them off the towel, or cut the towel around the seed. If some of the towel is stuck to the seed that’s fine, just plant the seed with a little towel stuck to it.
