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!!!!

Ok, I did not buy this product on amazon, but rather in my city in Georgia, Tbilisi. I saw it selling for like ~2$, so I bought it. The package was 3 years old, and I almost had no hope of actually growing it. BUT! after 2 weeks, even without a fridge, 5! seeds from 10, are growing. I'll upload some pics :)

Instructions weren't the best. Example: Didn't mention anything about the little soil pellets. Nothing about how to turn them into usable soil at all, thankfully I already knew. Deffinitely needs to be made clearer, as this kind of kit is something you'd get a beginner in gardening like me. Didn't explain why there were 5 pots though, and so many seeds, when it said you had two attempts. Why would I need 5 pots if I only had enough seeds for two attempts? Very unclear, but all planted (hopefully) now, will be updating if they grow.

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!

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.

Right first off, the instructions are for germination you get five pots and four packets of unidentified seeds.
So what i did:

i poured the seeds in a bowl and seperated them into five with a mix of seeds in each.

I put the given plant pots in a tub this was just to catch the water as i did them one at a time, i then planted one selection of seeds in that pot when the soil had swollen up fully and placed it into a very thin plastic freezer bag with no holes in adn poured in the excess water that came out of the bottome of hte plant pot into the tub. I did this for each of the plant pots and then put them in my mums shed where they would be out of direct sunlight for i think it was three weeks.

Today i took them out and they have all sprouted. So i havent put them in the fridge.

The instructions dont tell you how to look after the bonsai nore do they tell you what to do incase they have sprouted only tell you about what you need to do f they havent.

But i have bought a few starter kits (which havent been this make) and were dissapointed.

But this make i would deffinatly get again :)

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?

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!
