    For a first timer, the instructions were quite clear and straightforward. Of the 5 seeds i bought, 5 sprout with no issues. I am excited about the journey ahead and i'm happy that Terry is willing to address any questions one might have around the trees upkeep

    I bought the Bonsai growing kit for a friend for Christmas. It arrived really quickly, with a personalised note (haven't seen one of those in a while!). He absolutely loved the kit and I'll be buying more as gifts in the future. Thank you so much!

    I haven’t planted my black pine seeds yet. I am not sure If i can do it now, in December. I think it might be best to wait for spring time

    Hello John. You are correct, the best time to plant is early spring. If you can wait till then your chance of success will be higher than now seeing as the growing season is coming to and end.

    Japanese black pine

    The order was received in a good condition. The black pot with the branch engraving is beautiful and the little booklet is helpful.
