    By the way; as I remember from what I have read, the possibility of getting a red foliage is very low, from the seeds. Most of them will be green and also some "lottary" type of seedlings with different looks etc. That makes more exciting for me.

    Oh my goodness Tugo - how exciting! I am very grateful to you, for the seeds.

    Thank you too, for the information - and that gorgeous picture of that wonderful little seedling! It sure looks terrific! Very inspiring, indeed!

    Yes, but I read last night, if the seeds are taken from a red tree, or when the leaves are red, the seedlings will be red too!

    If not, it will be exciting to sprout many seeds and see how many red ones you get! I find it exciting too, Tugo!

    Ohhhh, I cannot wait...

    Hello Tugo thank you.
    If I do the fridge trick is it the freezer or fridge and how long ? Would be nice to start growing them a.s.a.p and not have to wait one year. to start the growing. I seem to have MANY little seeds there hanging on the tree. Our tree is about 3m across and 2m50 tall like a hutt I think I uploaded the picture earlier. IF the seeds are to rare I don't mind sharing them I cant grow 50 JM :-) ..bye4now.

    Hi Vic, if you decide to make the cold trick, just use the least coldest part of your refrigerator, the place where you keep your vegetables.

    As you say it is better to wait,till the seeds on your tree are mature and then directly sow them.
    You can spare some seeds for Hollyberry Lady, because I have promised her seeds from my tree but at the moment it has only 3 seeds on. Don't know if will come more till october.

    Here's what I wanna know:

    Do Vicarious1 and Tugo have seeds for the exact same red maple? Or are they both different? What are the differences, if so...

    Mine is called Acer Palmatum, Crimson Queen (Because of colour) Dissectum (Because of leaf shape).
    Don't know about Vic's. But imo all maples are beautiful.

    My concern is, dear Hollyberry Lady, I have promised you seeds, but this time, till now there are only 2 seeds on it :(( May be more will come out. Last year I had many but don't remember when they start showing out. Our elders say "do not ever promise depending on nature". I will wait and learn something new.

    But any how I will compensate your seeds, in a way.:))

    Not to worry Tugo! You can send me some seeds in the Fall - if you get some. Vicarious1 is sending me some seeds shortly, so it's ok.

    Thank you for the information - your tree sounds lovely. I am hoping we can trade at some point, later...

    :)

    Not trying to be rude, but this thread is getting very long - try sending a person a private message for any off-topic issues. Thanks.

    Hi Hollyberry Lady;

    I was looking for since a long time and today happily I got 4 seeds of "Pancratium maritimum" sea daffodil. I believe it will be a great experience for me to try them. At the moment I am reading all the necessary stuff.

    If you want I can send you 2 of the seeds; send address details by pm. And ok don't worry, I will ask some seeds from you also but I am trying to choose something I need for out doors.
