I just located a package that I forgot that I had ordered some 12 years ago. Its full of meticulously packaged tree/shrub seeds such as beauty bush, Japanese spice bush, and (most interestingly) 4 varieties of Acer Palmatum (Japanese Maple) trees. They have all been sealed in small ziplock bags which were placed in manilla envelopes. No air has touched the seeds in that entire time. Are these seeds viable? I have read the instructions on proper germination procedures and will try a few seeds of each variety to assess their overall health. Just thought I'd ask you experienced members with knowledge of these things. Thanks for reading!
