This $25 Kit Comes with Everything You Need to Grow Your Own Bonsai Trees
If you're looking for a new hobby or fun family activity, growing your own Bonsai trees might just be one of the best (and more affordable) options - and you don't even need a green thumb to do it thanks to this handy starter kit from Nature's Blossom. It comes with everything you need to grow four different types of Bonsai trees for just $25.
Your kit includes four seed packets, peat soil discs, biodegradable growing pots, plant markers, and a detailed instruction manual with useful tips and tricks. All the seeds are 100 percent non-GMO and come ready to sow. However, when your kit arrives, you'll want to start by soaking the seeds in warm water for 24 hours before planting.
According to the directions, you should expand the compressed soil pellets using hot water and fill the biodegradable pots with them. Then, plant one seed packet in each pot, cover it with a thin layer of soil, and water when it starts to feel dry. It's that simple! It's so simple, in fact, that hundreds of reviewers have given Nature's Blossom Bonsai Tree Kit a five-star review, calling it "perfect for the first time grower."
