Sowing Japanese red maple seeds:

It is imperative that the seeds are stratified either naturally by leaving them outside in winter, or artificially by placing them in the refrigerator for 3 weeks to have a high germination rate.
Once stratified, sow the seeds in a large pot of seeding soil, chopper tail up under 1cm deep.
Water gently with a sprayer then place the culture in a greenhouse at a temperature of 15 to 25°C.
Germination will begin after 3 to 4 weeks.

  • Easy to grow, good hardiness.
  • Seeds must imperatively be stratified before being planted in a pot.
  • Reproducible seeds without organic designation but untreated seeds.
  • Slow growth, use an acid PH substrate.
  • Magnificent shape and colors of the leaves.




Bon taux de germination

Les graines d'érable du Japon ont toutes germées après les avoir stratifiées 15 jours dans le sable.
