Hi everyone, I read somewhere ( can't remember ) one had realized he could reach a higher germination rate by sowing samaras directly into flats and by leaving them outside ( as opposed to the fridge method ) I have just noticed the other day that my Acer Circinatum had samaras on it . I have these flat semi transparent plastic boxes used to store garments/toys under the bed. I thought I could give it a try, poke a few holes in the bottom and lid of the box, soak the seeds three days in water, sow them on top of a wet mix of sand and loam, put the lid back on and leave it outside for 6 months. Do you think it could work ? Thanks Fabrice.
