How to Grow Montpellier Maple Tree Seeds!
# 1 | Soak your Montpellier maple tree seeds in water for 24-hours.
# 2 | Mix 1-part moist peat moss with 1-part moist sand (do not get the medium too wet or seed will rot).
# 3 | Place peat/sand mixture in a zip-lock bag and push seeds into the mixture. Place the bag inside a refrigerator for 60-90 days. Check your bag daily to allow fresh air and ensure the mixture is moist.
#4 | Remove after cold stratification and sow your montpellier maple seeds 1/4 inch deep, tamp the soil, mulch the seedbed. Only water if the seedbed becomes dry.
A fall sowing in mulched beds is preferred to artificial stratification.
