    5.0 out of 5 stars So Far So Good!! :D 4 April 2011
    By Rory.P
    Ok, so I got this as a christmas present this year (2010) as I love trees! and I would definatly recommend it! Here's a step by step of what to expect from my experience.

    - For those put off by the previous reviews, don't be alarmed, yes the instructions are somewhat confusing, however there is more than enough to get you going.
    - Also I'd like to make the point that results are not instant, will NOT appear in 8-10 days and, and will take time and effort if you want to succeed.
    - Ok, so the instructions state that there is enough for two attempts?? This is questionable as the seed is difficult to seperate, so what I did was just put each sachet (4 in total) into 4 pots(out of the 5? which is also confusing). Then according to the plan, cover in a plastic bag and leave for 3-4 weeks in a cool light place. As it was christmas, I put mine in the conservatory, but any suitable place would do.
    - Following that, the pots were then placed in a fridge!!! (yes a fridge) for another 3-4 weeks. Hence why 8-10 day results are ridiculous. After this they are to be placed in an area with sunlight and watered, so I put mine on the windowill at Uni.

    - Now I planted mine on the 22/12/10, and after all the storing and cooling, I fist saw shoots (yes multiple but I'll explain) at about mid february, so about a month and a bit after sowing. Primarily I got around 8-10 small stalks with petals on in each pot, however a week or so later, one large shoot emerged from each pot, and now as I write today 04/04/11 the single shoots range from 4-5cm and look awesome!! I now have to leave them for a YEAR before doing anything in the way of cutting, but its worth the wait.
    So just to summarise, it will take ages, the sowing process its borderline silly, but I definatly recommend it!!!!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Grow your own - with limited instructions 20 Jan 2010
    By AJ
    Bought for a Christmas present, and whilst the delivery and service from Amazon was great, the Grow Your Own Bonsai Tree box set is disappointing. Instructions are very limited and seeds are in one sealed packet rather than labelled according to type of seed. The set appears to be for a beginner, but some gardening experience is needed and a book on Bonsai Trees will certainly be needed. The instructions give advice for planting, but give NO guidance about cutting and pruning. So really it's only useful if you want to grow your own random tree from the seeds provided and then go and find out somewhere else how to make it a Bonsai Tree!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 25 Dec 2012
    Verified Purchase
    This kit was great in that it had everything you need to grow a bonsai tree...unfortunately that doesnt help the fact bonsai trees are ridiculously hard to grow.

    If you dont know much about bonsai tree care...id suggest buying one that is already 2 or 3 years old.

    1.0 out of 5 stars low value 10 Jan 2010
    Verified Purchase
    The product (and all the others in this range no doubt) are very attractively packed and make an interesting present. BUT the value is in the packaging, the instructions are incomplete and shallow with no real attempt at step-by-step requirments. Will the seeds germinate? - no idea, and what happens if they do not?

    1.0 out of 5 stars Bonsai seeds 18 May 2010
    Still waiting for a sign of growth after 2 months, disappointed. Hardly any seeds in the packet so the probability of germination is extremely small.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Slowly does it 13 Nov 2009
    By Petros
    Bonsai trees are small and very difficult to grow from seed. I followed the instructions and very slowly little seeds started to sprout - who knows what the future will bring but I hope I am still around to see it!

    One seed out of plenty grew only to die after a short while, read the instructions and followed exactly as prompted and have grown other plants myself too, but this was rubbish and a wasted of money

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not what i had thought it would be
    I never knew the chances of growing a Bonzai were so demanding and so low. My one grew moss on it after 4th week and is now useless apparently.

    I bought this pack over christmas, but didn't plant the seeds until January 19th. The first sign of any life came on March 27th, over 2 months from planting. Read more

    3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't the best
    The tree only grew whilst in the fridge, as soon I took it out it wilted. It was hopeless. Was really quiet annoying.
