When and how to plant my seeds?

nrj33445566October 26, 2008

I would like to know when to seed my seeds, how to you prepare them, and what to do or where to store them till it is time to seed them.

Some of the seeds I bought will be Sugar Maple (like the Canadian Flag), others are Acer Palmatum atropureum ( Japanese Maple), Acer Platanoides (Norway Maple), and Acer Rubrum (Red Maple).

All purchase from a supplier and will be delivered to my house any time soon.

Winter is coming, so I would have to store them somewhere for the winter or start from inside growing.

I never planted seeds before, so I will need a lot of help.

There are lots of resources that supply info and germination tips online. Look through the thread below for Acer palmatum info. Are you in z2? Palmatums will be quite a challenge in that location.

I have looked around, but most of them say they plant them in Feb or March, when there are still snow on the ground.

I wonder if I should just store them in the fridge longer, or start cleaning them much later.

I don't live in my own house yet, but will in a few months. I would rather wait till then to start then. I wonder if I should keep them dry till I am ready to put them in water.
