    The reason I got the seeds was a package I purchased at a garage sale somewhere for a buck or two. The box had a nice blue glazed bonsai pot, some wire, small clippers, soil, gravel, and some other stuff. A moneymaker/crap! what do I give as a gift thing for sure, but a good bargain. I am in my 50's so no go on the young thing, but I do like to play with seeds from time to time. Dunno if the Japanese black pine is rare or hard to get, but I thought I would throw it out there. My unscientific way to check the seed was to crack one with my teeth and the seed coats were not dried out. Packed for sale in 2001, so ten years past that. But if you wanted to train something your way, what better way than to start with a seedling? Maybe not. Personally, I don't do bonsai per se, but sometimes grow things in smaller pots and trim to suit my whims. Each to his or her own, I guess. http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/...6/IMGP5907.jpg

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry this is so, so, so very late... But there are my two bonsai that I promised to post pictures of back in January. I'm also sorry that we're stuck with crummy cell-phone camera pictures.

    My juniper. It was gifted to me mostly bonsai'd, and it sat outside and was ignored for many many years until I decided to pay attention to it now. I shaped it properly, put it in the shallower pot, and added the moss.


    And my heather. It was just growing in my garden and I uprooted it, potted it in the same shallow pot at the juniper, shaped it, and added the rocks and moss. I'm still trying to figure out what I'll do with it in the grand scheme of things.

    When you do, would you be willing to post some before and after pictures?
