Amur Maple (Acer ginnala) seeds

pardak(5)August 10, 2009

Hi everyone. I have an Amur maple on the property and it's covered in beatuiful red seeds this year. The tree looks very healthy and has grown very well this season.

I'd like to collect some seeds this fall and try growing a few more trees next year. I'm just wondering when the seeds should be collected. Is there a particular time/month to collect them or just wait until they turn from red to brown?

Anyone have any tips or suggestions for growing Amur maples from seed?

Thanks

Pardak
