I'm on the look out for Larch and Chinese Quince, seedlings or larger. I don't have a large budget. I have located a few online. Before I make a decision where to get them I thought I would post here and see if any BonsaiNutters have something to spare. I did start larch seeds but nothing has come up yet. I wouldn't mind getting a jump on something that has already grown at least one season. Thanks!

I have a couple of rooted Chinese Quince cuttings taken from mature flowering wood. I just potted them up a couple of weeks ago, so would prefer to wait until fall to send. If you will send me a reminder around the first of October, I'll send 'em your way.

I got a couple quince last year from Kaede Bonsai that grew like weeds—highly recommend. As for larch, I got American larch last year from Holly Hills Nursery. I waited until they went on sale and got a pretty good deal. They have Japanese as well. If you get on their email list they send daily specials. They also grew well and have bud out. I just got more Japanese larch yesterday from Scenic Hills Farm in OR. Really good deal right now on eBay 10 plants for $39 with free shipping. Here are some photos:

I love Chinese quince. Wish I would have started 100 of them in the ground 15 years ago, with some wiggle in the trunks.

Thank you all for the wonderful responses! I'll have a look at these various options when I get home. I will probably locate a Chinese Quince long before this autumn though one never knows! I have larch seeds down since last autumn that will in theory germinate this spring, or ... eventually. I wouldn't mind locating something a little larger. A Japanese larch is a maybe and I'll compare it with my native species. ;)

Just hardwood cuttings pushed in the ground?

For what it's worth, I just went online and ordered a batch from Scenic Hill Farm based on your post. I have been thrilled with the quality of their stock from men previous orders (scots and mugo). Thanks for the post!!!

Scenic Hill Farm on eBay is selling Japanese larch for a great price. I got 10 for $39.95 including shipping! The plants arrived in great shape and are growing like weeds. Nice plants that should be able to take slightly warmer USDA zone 7. I have been tempted to order more.
