The right season for plantation:
It is important to take into account the current season in which you are planning to plant maple tree in your garden. The favorable season for planting maple tree is fall as the roots of this tree grow in cooler weather.
Choosing the seeds/saplings:
Get the right seeds for planting. A right seed is the one that is of right size which is between 2.5 to 4 inches in diameter. However if you are planting the saplings then the right ones to go for are with green stalk.
Choosing the right place:
Now is the stage at which you should choose a suitable location in your garden where these beauties can flourish properly. A suitable soil for planting a maple tree is the one that can absorb the right amount of water. For this dig a hole in the soil that is about 1 ft deep and 1 ft wide, now fill the hole with water and leave it for sometime. If the water is used up within 45 minutes then the soil is a best fit for our maple tree to grow. In addition to this make sure that the area you are selecting is wide enough for the resulting large maple roots to grow properly.
Preparing to plant:
The next step is to dig out the soil. With the help of a shovel dig out a hole of appropriate size in the ground which must be two times larger in size then the actual size of the seed.
If you are planting a sapling then make sure that while you put it in the hole the roots fully fit in the hole.
After digging out the hole, it’s time to drop in the seeds. If you are installing the saplings then do it by carefully putting in the new root ball in the hole and ensuring that you haven’t hurt its roots. After putting in the seeds/saplings, cover it with soil using a shovel. Afterwards, thoroughly water the plant.
