A note before you plant...growing trees from seed is a rewarding experience but it requires a little more patience than your other plants.

To give your seeds the best chance you need to "break" their dormancy period. (Stratification process) This isn't as scary as it sounds. Just pop the seeds in your fridge for 12 weeks before planting. This will set you up for success!

Stratification refers to the process of subjecting tree seeds to cold temperature, thus snapping them from the dormancy state. This is a process done in preparation to germinating a seed to create a bonsai tree.

Some tree seeds will never sprout until they are able to sense that cold and warm cycle. The seeds experience cold winter months, and then when spring arrives, they suddenly sense the change, thus starting to sprout into seedlings.

Please note that due to the seasonal availability of seeds we may occasionally swap out the listed variety for a similar alternative. This is done to ensure we remain as sustainable a company as possible whilst securing the seeds as advertised for our kits.

How to Plant
  1. Soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours. This will allow the seeds to swell and absorb water which will help with germination.

  2. Fill the bamboo pots with compost (keep a little aside to cover the seeds)
  3. Using tweezers, carefully sow a few seeds and cover with fine layer of compost. Gently even out the top layer of the compost to make it flat but don't compact it.
  4. Sprinkle a few vermiculite around the seeds, this will slowly release nutrients back to the seeds which it has absorbed during watering.
  5. Label your plant marker with the seed type you have planted and add into each bamboo pot. Stand each pot in a saucer and place the pots in a cool dry area for 14 days. Do not put in direct sunlight.
  6. Place your pots in a well ventilated warm area. Now water regularly, keep the compost moist but not saturated. Once the seedlings reach 3 inches in height, transplant the pot into a larger pot to allow enough room for proper continued growth.

Note: For Bonsai seeds: Place your seeds in the bag provided and leave them in the fridge for 12 weeks to break their dormancy period.
