Acer Seed Wanted....
« on: October 28, 2007, 04:59:12 PM »
Looking for seed of:
Acer pseudosieboldianum, sieboldianum, japonicum

Any of the Asian snakebark maples...

Or any other (small) worthwhile understory species...

In some quantity (not 10 or 20 seeds)...

A check should be made for the presence of an embryo (problematic with many Acers)--cut through a seed and see...

Hopefully I could intice you with something wonderful in return...

Thank You,
Kristl
so many species....so little time

I had a good crop on A. tegmentosum last year, Krist (and have several seedlings growing now). This year very poor seed set, and by now the seed is all gone anyways. Remind us again next year - but in september!
I suppose a small seedling is no good for your use, otherwise I would offer to smuggle one in the post for you.
Incidentally the mouse populations are huge in our area this autumn, and I am worried cause it can spell disaster for many yooung trees and shrubs, like the A tegmentosum. Have seen examples where all bark from the ground and one meter up is all gone in spring.  The good thing is that I hope for a good season in my nesting boxes for owls. Have checked one box wich contained a food chamber of more than 20 mice allready. Die! Die! (sorry about this last brutal outburst)

Hello Dominique.
Yes, winter and mice permitting, I will be happy to send you a seedling in the spring. Please e-mail me privately with your adress, and I will put a reminder in my calendar for april.
