Moved 7 years ago to a property with an 80ft garden which was just like a field full of weeds! My husband has helped me create the garden of my dreams

Rather like this year's Acer Seedlings. Just need to keep the slugs at bay and not over water....🙄

@Andreamarie anytime of year better to take cuttings?

@mch these are grown from seed. I have never tried taking cuttings from Acer's so have no idea I'm afraid ☺

Thanks @Keely but I'm sorry I've no idea! I collected loads of seeds a few years ago from an assortment of trees but apparently seeds don't grow true to type 😀

Oooo looking good. Have you taken cuttings?

How long do you leave these before you know they've taken root? I imagine growth on a top would be a hint. I'm working on one tiny curly maple. I took a piece from my brothers. It's tiny but fine since January.

Hi I've grown these from seed @SylviaDavies @hobnob and @columbiariver 😊 Some are in their 2nd year and some their 3rd year! They grow so slowly!!

hobnob

Hi Andrea. .might sound like a daft question but where or how did you get seeds for the maples? ?

comment
columbiariver

That's a long process then. You're a very patient woman. These are coming right along then, and about ready to take off for you.

comment
Andreamarie

Lol I don't know about patient @columbiariver! @hobnob in September I usually have a week off and visit some gardens. A lot of maples are in seed around then so I collected some of the fallen seeds 😊

Thank you @Susanandsteve! Definitely have a go - it's so easy. The hardest bit is preventing the slugs from eating them!! 😊
