Some seeds require a hot or cold stratification or scarifacation in order to germinate. Some maple seeds can take two years to germinate. Google seed germinating database and you should find some websites that will give you germination rates, optimum temps, and pre-treatments for your seeds. Make sure your seedbeds drain well. Only water when needed or you will rot them in the ground. I learned that lession the hard way cold stratifying 4000 japanese maple seeds last winter.
