Flowering

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Most acers and maples have somewhat insignificant flowers. The flowers can be green, yellow, orange or red, and usually appear in early Spring, and are an early source of nectar and pollen for bees.

 

Planting

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

Smaller varieties can be grown in pots and containers. The best time for planting is late Winter / early Spring, before the leaves appear

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Spring TO Mid Summer

Propagation methods vary according to the variety. Most varieties are propagated by means of softwood cuttings.

 

Propagating by grafting

From Early Summer TO Mid Summer

Some acers or maples are best propagated by grafting. This certainly applies to 'Shirasawanum' varieties.
