What is it?

Growing bonsai from seed can be a very rewarding experience. Using a good seedling medium ensures that your seedlings get off to the best start possible. 

Our Professional Seedling mix contains a mixture of Perlite, Coir and Peat Moss. Perlite is volcanic glass used to enhance aeration and drainage. It also retains moisture. Peat Moss is said to be a sterile medium and is harvested decayed plant material. Useful in this mix as it retains moisture and is very light. Coir is made from the husk of the coconut. Similar to Peat Moss in most respects however it is not as moisture retentive.

    How to use it

    Empty the contents of the bag into a suitable container with many drainage holes. Plant your seeds as directed and then water thoroughly. Place in a warm, sunny position although not in full sun, and keep slightly moist at all times. Damp sheets of newsprint paper are useful as a sort of mulch, covering the surface until the seeds germinate and can then be removed and discarded.

      Bonsai Tree Professional Seedling Mix Review

      Great Product

      The Professional Seedling Mix is great to work with. It is soft and easy to apply. It retains water well and it just feels great to work with. I used it for apple seeds as well and it worked great for them. Good product to buy for seedlings. Will definitely recommend it to anyone.

      Thats fantastic JP that you had such good results! Growing from seed can be a little hit and miss sometimes and every "edge" one can get on successful germination is welcome. I am glad it worked so well for you. Thanks for the great photo too.

      Quality product

      Much better experience with germination of seedlings - various indigenous trees - than with mixes available from large nurseries
