I have a gorgeous maple tree in my front lawn and I want to plant more like it. The tree gives off very few keys a year so I want to make sure this works. How do I go about planting a maple key?
There are several different species of maple (Acer spp.) in Ontario so I am not sure which one you have. Here is information about each of the species and their propagation protocols. Your best bet is to plant the seeds in containers and then transplant the seedlings to the ground after it has thawed sufficiently in the spring.
