Spring is just around the corner..

So.. I have started shoving seeds in the ground. Just for the fun of it. Not really expecting this to be bonsai in my lifetime...

Anyone else thinking long-longer-longest term?

I am now starting

- Acer palmatum Elegans
- Malus Sylvestris
- Prunus Spinosa
- Pinus nigra
- Laburnum Alpinum
- Pinus Sylvestris

Did over 100 Tamarind seeds about 3 years ago - worked down to about 15, but I still collect the seeds from locally made sweets - tamarind balls, and there is an area on our High Street in San Fernando, where a seedling appears every so many months, and I collect those as well.

Fukien tea, small leaf.
Shifted J.B.pine from seed to cuttings.
Sageretia t.
Cuphea - I saw years ago in a friend's garden, 2.5 cm trunks, still trying to figure out how.
Malpighia e. - have an old mother shrub, fun plants to grow.
Cocoloba u. - mother tree on the lawn, birds plant the seeds.

In the growing trough generally 3 to 5 years for trunk, and 6 branches, then however long for refinement.
About to harvest some local xanthoxlyum [ spelling ?] and celtis.
Did some airlayers on the cocoloba, expect results in about 3 more years. Trying for hundreds of small leaves and a few branches.

Happy germination.
