my acer dissectum is producing seeds at the tip of several leaves, how do I propagate these successfully?



These trees are usually grafted, so any seed which is produced may be sterile, or will give a completely different form of maple, one you don't necessarily want. Some seeds require stratification before sowing, others can be sown in a cold frame in autumn.

I'm assuming he/she means from pedicels towards the end of the stem with leaves on, Moongrower...
