Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exciting to Anticipate Since it is a bonsia tree as long as you have patience the process is quite enjoyable. I purchased/planted my kit last year, living in a small frozen apartment (heater wasn't working well for a cold winter but the trees have survived) ; I don't have a gardening track record but right now I have 4 twigs growing (they've shedded leaves due to their deciduous nature) around 5-8 inches. Note that it takes around 5 years before they are mature enough to look like the picture. The price makes it seem like a gamble, but don't shy away if you're a beginner like me! I'll give it a 4/5 rating for now, because I can't be certain until 4 years down the road what it'll look like. I am definitely purchasing another bonsia kit this year and other garden kits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Kit However Not For Beginners! This kit is wonderful as it comes with soil, seeds and a pot to start growing your own Bonsai tree. Nevertheless the instructions are a double sided piece of paper that has easy to follow instructions but since it does take a long time to understand and learn how to take care and maintain the tree you might need a "Beginners guide to Bonsai" book or look at some videos which I did.  In addition the Crepe Myrtle bonsai does grow into a very beautiful plant later on in the future. The only problem is the price point by other than that you should give it a try if you are looking into Bonsai trees and wanting to get started in growing one.  Nevertheless the product is a very nice gift as you can see by the packaging or a fun and new thing you may try out yourself.
