Seedling Time!

It’s that time of year again! Bare root seedling time! Growing bonsai from seed can be extremely rewarding(if you’re young and/or have access to a place to grow in the ground).
By growing from seedling, as an artist, you have total control of what direction you want the trees to take, and it’s much easier to minimize the flaws that are common from nursery and other types if stock.
I just got my annual group of seedlings in from Matt Ouwinga, at Kaede Bonsai En, and couldn’t be happier. In the last several years I’ve been getting seedlings from Matt, my attrition rate is next to zero, and I highly recommend Matt as the place to go for bare root seedlings for Bonsai.

About japanesepots

I've been collecting Japanese Bonsai pots for a few years, and feel that the famous, and some of the lesser known but great Japanese pot artists could do with a little more writing and exposure in English. Additionally, this blog will feature My own And others bonsai for discussion. The purpose of this blog is to further knowledge of Japanese pottery and Japanese style bonsai. If you have any questions about Japanese bonsai pottery, or would like to acquire pots by some of the potters presented in the blog, feel free to email me at
