Japanese Maple - Seedlings - Worth the effort?
We planted our Home Depot Japanese Maple (Bloodgood I think) about 10 year ago. Anyway, for the first time, we have little seedlings popping up. Today I must have dug up about 10 that are only about 3" high.
I read somewhere that JM seedlings will never develop a root system strong enough to support the tree. Who am I kidding? I'll probably be dead by the time these little things grow enough to be considered a real tree. LOL! Anyway, I was wondering if any GA gardners have ever tried to nurture a little Japanese Maple?
I know that there is a GW tree forum. I'd just like to know if any GA gardeners have had any success with JM seedlings? Also, am I just wasting my time trying to grow these?
Let me know if I need to post on the tree forum. It will be done.
