Post subject:  Hello

Hi, I new to world of bonsai trees and I have decided to try and grow from new. I bought a starter pack
From a store near me and so far out of 15 seeds I have now got 5 that have started to sprout. I planted them at the end of December and have kept to soil moist for around 3 weeks then I transferred them
To my fridge for 6 weeks, I have since had them on the window sill with some defuser material so as not to have them in direct sunlight. I almost gave up on them as there was now sign of growth but yesterday afternoon I finally had a change of luck and noticed the start of life. I am looking forward watcheng them grow.

Hi Yogi - welcome to the friendly forum.
You've certainly chosen the long way to enter the hobby so while you are waiting for your seedlings to thicken up, I would recommend that you obtain some well grown material to work on in the interim. This will keep your interest alive and provide something to design somewhat quicker.
This topic:- viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1823 will help you to find something suitable.
We look forward to hearing of your progress. Just ask anything which you need to know, read the existing pages and above all, enjoy yourself.

Welcome to weetrees. As Don said - you will probably benefit from getting some more developed material to work on while your seedlings grow.

Really amazed at the moment. As I said I nearly gave up but decided to give them some more time. I have been looking at them daily and each day there seams to be more coming through. Started with 4 showing and now have 9. My only worry is that when they are bigger how long do I need to wait before putting into seperat pots.

My experience with seeds is limited but the few I've done have suffered when I've potted them on with many begin lost, so nowadays I tend to let them get as big as possible first. Post a photo and the good folk will advise.

You will be bored of watching them soon. You are only about 40 mins from Downsview Bonsai in Eastbourne. Pop in there and you will find a load of small stuff in the back garden for £4 per pot that makes really good material to play with.

I'd buy larch, hawthorn and cotoneaster in their little tubs - and buy pots to plant them in. The pots are about £1 each.

Then you have something to keep you interested while the seeds grow.

Hi blue belt, thanks for the advice on downs view, I had a really nice chat with them and got some great advice. Going to pop in there soon to get some young trees so I can learn as I watch my others grow.
