Dawn Redwood Bonsai Forest

Enjoy some meditative greenery and cultivate your own bonsai tree forest with this kit.

$50.00

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.

            We had all recently seen the dawn redwoods at the Berkeley botanical garden, and read about how they were rediscovered in China when thought to be extinct. My son-in-law was particularly interested in the story, and so a dawn-redwood forest of his own was a perfect gift.

              It was reasonable
              It was unique
              His expression was priceless

              My expectation wasn't met - I thought they would be small plants instead it was seeds. Grow redwoods from seeds in winter..... remains to be seen.

              Did love they added extra batch of seeds incase something happens to the first batch.

              It still was an awesome gift

                My brother and sister-in-law have house plants and love projects. Their wedding reception was in a Redwood forest, so this was an amazingly, thoughtful gift to them.

                I was worried about the reviews (seeds didn't sprout), but they sent a "backup" set of seeds, which was thoughtful. The packaging was thoughtful, this is a beautiful gift!

                This will be a Chritmas gift for my brother and sister-in-law. So I can't really review it and it will have to grow won't it.

                    We were looking forward to having a Bonsai forest with these Dawn Redwoods. Unfortunately, none of them came up for us. My husband was so disappointed.

                      My husband bought this as a gift for me for my birthday. I am an avid gardener with a green thumb. I planted the seeds and had success with four seedlings sprouting, I took great care for three months, the trees did not get sturdy enough to plant in the "forest" box. I may attempt the planting again in the spring using the extra seeds. This requires two things, a green thumb and an abundance of patience! If you are not patient this is not for you.
