At first I thought  "What is he on about?" I know my seeds! But then
it occured to me that perhaps it's a culteral thing so I did a quick
check on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sycamore and sure enough

"The sycamores of North America are members of the genus Platanus.
There are several species, including the American sycamore, and the
California sycamore.

The sycamore in Britain and Ireland is a European maple tree, Acer
pseudoplatanus, also called Sycamore Maple."

So it seems we are both correct. I therefore to modify the keywords
and add maple and acer. Is there anyway I can do that?
