Propagation of Norway maples ?
Unfortunately, Norway maples are generally not hardy in my extreme climate, but there does exist some trees in which have been situated in very protected spots. Though, several years ago I had come across a red leafed form that was happily growing away in the beautiful mountain town of Jasper, Alberta. I'm soon travelling there and was wanting to collect scions for propagation. Now, I was wondering if these could be SPRING budded (chip budded) onto understock ... or does one have to wait until late summer? I've otherwise been successful with this method, as it does not require the bark needing to slip.
