There is a lovely crimson maple tree I know and I would love to know how to propagate it by cutting.I know someone who just poked two sticks down and they rooted but how do I have the baser chances of rooting?

I have propagated many plants from cuttings,this one is just boggling me!

I have seedlings in my garden (12" tall) of "Crimson King." You're welcome to some, if you like. I'm in Co. Limerick and you couldn't dig them up, really, until autumn because of where they're positioned.

Hope you have a large garden as the amount of leaf liter in huge, blocks drains and gutters. Oh dont think you will use it in the garden as leaf mulch, where will you store the leaves you will need a large area for that alone.

Edlyn. What kind of maple are you talking about? It seems to be causing a bit of confusion. A Japanese maple (A. palmatum species) or "Crimson King" a cultivar of the Norway Maple, (A. platanoides)?

On the topic of propagating maples, what about Acer Griseum? I've had one for years, it produces loads of seeds but nary a one has self sown. I've stratified some too, before sowing them but to no avail. Suggestions welcome.

Nary: 18th century expression from 'not ever', quite common and likely used by Swift etc.
