    They come in all shapes and sizes. The Bonsai Nut seedling thread.

But some gardener told me I can basically throw them away because theyre hybrids or whatever. I dont care if they dont turn out exactly like last year but Im told they may not grow well...

    Purchasing bare-root seedlings in winter

    Hello I was thinking of buying some bare-root trident maple seedlings. The problem is that they ship immediately and I live in zone 6B where it can remain cold for a while. Is there any way I can protect the seedlings in the mean time? I was hoping to plant them in the ground this year, but I...

    Dying seedlings? Over watering?

    Hello - It looks as though my bonsai seedlings are wilting. I’m going to guess it is from over watering due to the fruit fly like bugs I’ve seen in the soil. I water using a spray bottle to mist them. I was giving 15 sprays a day but have reduced to a handful. I saw online that putting...

    Hey all! I hope this is the right forum for this thread, if I need to post to a different one no worries. Looking for advice on how to keep my last three year-old Dawn Redwood seedlings alive.

    JeffS73 Belated 2018 JBP from seed thread

    I know this is a late entry but perhaps you will let it stand after reading! So I found this 6 yr JBP contest thread earlier this year, after I'd started some 2020 seedlings, but they're a different story. I started my first JBP seeds in 2018, and it wasn't an early start either: I planted...

    Are fruit seeds a viable way to start bonsai?

    I've been looking around for tree seedlings growing in unwanted places, but most of the candidates I see are on private property or are inaccessible. Buying trees is expensive. So I've been looking into starting tree seeds myself, and the most obvious place to start is with the seeds of the...

    Hello Nutties..... Check out these seedlings that I have acquired!!! I'm not sure on the rules about promoting sites so for now I'll leave it alone where I purchased from. I know that many advanced Bonsai students just go for the thick trunks, but as I've stated in other posts, my love for...

    Anacacho Orchid Progression

    I'm starting this thread to document the progress of my Anacacho Orchid seedlings over the coming years. The species (Bauhinia lunarioides) is a rare TX native that I'm very excited about, although not sure how it will eventually work as bonsai (only one way to find out!). Perhaps this will be...

    When should I start to fertilize my 2 week old seedling?

    It is a Delonix Regia that I am keeping indoors until the weather permits otherwise. This is the first tree seed that I’ve planted. Also, what kind of fertilizer should I use and should I put it in another “pot”. This one came with the kit and I’m not sure how sufficient it is. I have...
