Collect seeds in September and October. Peel off the winged samara and place seeds in moist peatmoss in a plastic bag. Store 60-90 days at about 41 degrees. After this time, plant the seeds outdoors in a prepared seedbed (protect from animals). When the seedlings are up and have their first set of true leaves (these will be maple-shaped), transplant them into a spot or pots where they are also protected from animal damage. After a few months, they can be transplanted into a permanent home. Good luck!
