Personal Forest

Bring the essence of nature and meditative relaxation to your life with this engaging bonsai kit. It contains everything you need to cultivate a grove of miniature trees that you foster along, from seedling to bonsai forest—redwood and moss seeds, growing medium, seedling training pots, bonsai shears, river stones, detailed directions, and a recycled US steel grow box.

These tiny trees are actually ancestors of the giant California redwood. Called Dawn redwoods, they were thought to be extinct until the 1940s, when one was discovered growing in a rice field in central China. And even though its towering relative is an evergreen, the Dawn redwood is one of only two known deciduous conifers. In the fall, their leafy needles turn from green to yellow to copper, bringing the pageant of the changing seasons to your desk or kitchen window. Kit made in Idaho.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest:

        The entire package is wonderful and will be perfect for my desk. But, after 2 packets of seeds and only two trees growing I was disappointed. I talked to Uncommon Goods customer service and they set me up with another TWO sets of seeds. I was NOT going to waste my second chance. I read a little on the web and came up with my plan. THE SECRET FOR ME WAS TO SOAK THE SEEDS FOR 4 DAYS PRIOR TO PLANTING. I did everything else exactly the same as before and I have easily 24 trees with more coming up!!!! I didn't even need the second set of seeds. I am very pleased with my forest. Thanks to Uncommon goods and good luck everyone with your future forests!

            Comments about UncommonGoods Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest:

            I am so excited! I have about 36 sprouts! I had my doubts, but after a little over two weeks the first sprouts were peeking out! They are about two weeks old now. These are from the original seed packet. I still have the extras. I got this for Christmas and waited until early June to plant. I am wondering if I should be separating them into other pots so they don't have to compete with each other. The directions say to transplant them when they get their first true needles. But it doesn't say how long that will take. And if they don't have needles by winter, should I still overwinter them? I'm going to have to contact someone with my questions. Overall I'm thrilled and can't wait to watch them grow!

            Purchased as a gift. The packaging was beautiful. Although some of the seeds fell out of the packaging. It was not a big deal to put them back in the packaging.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest:

            Thirty years ago, my husband planted a Dawn Redwood in our NJ home. He loved that tree. Well, we moved to CT and he was so happy to find one in a nursery to plant again. When I saw the Dawn Redwood Bonsai on line, I knew it would be a perfect gift, not an easy task for someone who has everything. It arrived on May 10 and I gave him his early Father's Day gift. He was so happy and thought I had seen his folded page in the catalog. What joy I had to give him a gift he really loved!
            On May 11, my husband suddenly died from a heart attack. Now this Dawn Redwood Bonsai is my precious tree to plant and nurture in his memory.
