Hi, Kate,
Oh, I love Acer griseum - one of my favourite small trees. Gorgeous bark! Generally, A. griseum does not set seed unless several plants are nearby. Having said that, I had one all by its lonesome that did set seed - another rule-breaker! If you have fresh, ripe seeds, sow in a seedbed or in pots in a cold frame. If you want to wait for spring, store the seeds in the refrigerator until you are ready to sow. If you have seeds that have dried out, soak them for 48 house before storing or sowing. The seeds will germinate at 10-15 degrees C but may need two springs before they will. I have planted seeds and have had then germinate in one spring. Let me know where you plant them and how you get on.
Kathy C.

Hi thanks very much for that information, very useful. There are a couple of trees I'm keeping an eye on to watch for seeds, so I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks
