Well Dirk about 4 years ago I planted Trident seeds in a tray and after several months nothing grew I emptied the tray into the garden. A month later I noticed a huge clump of trident trees growing in the garden!! By then I wanted to move the trees out of the garden and into containers. I did this operation in the summer against my best judgement! A horrible heat wave took place and I lost them all. It just goes to show never give up!

I'm anxious to try again.
Have to wait another month though before I can sow the seeds. Wether here
was good, for four days in a row. Next week we'll have snow again and temperatures
well below freezing.
It will be April before i get my seeds out of the fridge.

Trident and Japanese Maple seeds are in seedtray. JM seed already sprouted in the fridge.
Some JM seeds already above the ground. For Tridents its probably still to cold. Need to get heating underneath the seedtray.

Voilá

Came up with 16 JM and 16 TM seedling.
All separately in 4'' pots now.

I think not a very bad result: Had 16 TM out of about 50 seeds. That is over 30% if I calculate that correctly. JM even better.
Now we'll see what stays alive through next months and next winter.
