Recycled steel case, tree and moss seed, seedling training pots, seed-starting wafers, growing medium, river stones, bonsai scissors and rake with spade, complete growing directions
Box is 9.5" square x 3.25" tall
Elegantly understated, this bonsai forest pairs clean lines and industrial materials with the ancient art of miniature gardening. The contemporary design maintains a traditional awareness to complement a variety of both indoor and outdoor spaces.
This kit includes everything needed to grow and sculpt trees into works of living art: seedling training pots, tree and moss seed, seed-starting wafers, growing medium, and river stones. Also included are bonsai scissors, rake, and spade — authentic tools which have been made by the same company since 1663! — and complete growing directions.
Since the trees grow from seeds, you get complete control over their styling, and you get to enjoy each stage of their growth. (For reference, the trees pictured at left are three years old.)
The Dawn redwood trees that grow from this kit are an ancient tree related to the coastal redwoods of California. Once thought to be extinct, in the 1940's, Dawn redwood was discovered growing in a remote region of central China. What makes the Dawn redwood truly special is that it is a deciduous coniferous tree. This means that in the autumn, the light green foliage turns yellow, then bronze, and finally, like leaves, drops off as a normal part of the tree's growth.
