Purchase a dawn redwood tree sapling to grow as an ornamental plant in large pots or in the ground. You can also train them into bonsai. (Metasequoia Glyptostroboides).


 Please be aware that these trees are deciduous. In Autumn they will be losing their leaves and will have no foliage in winter.


Metasequoia glyptostroboides, the dawn redwood, is a fast-growing, endangered deciduous conifer, the sole living species of the genus Metasequoia, one of three species in the subfamily Sequoioideae. It now survives only in wet lower slopes, river and stream valleys in south-central China. Although the shortest of the redwoods, it can grow to 120 ft (37 m) in height.
This magnificent tree dates back to the dinosaur age and was thought to be extinct until discovered in central China in the 1940s. It is a particularly well-known example of a living fossil species. The tree faces considerable risks of extinction in its wild range due to deforestation, however it has been planted extensively worldwide, where it has proved a popular and fast-growing ornamental and bonsai tree.

    Our tree saplings in 9cm pots (1Year+)


    • All trees in 9cm pots are at least a year old from seed. Germinated last year during spring and stratified the winter prior.
    • Moved into their own 9cm pots after the first few weeks in seed trays.

    • We continue to look after them for another year until the following spring to ensure their survival through their most vulnerable stage in life and on route to becoming established trees.

    • All trees can be pot grown, ground grown or trained for bonsai.

    • We recommend pot slipping the trees into much larger containers allowing the roots room, which will greatly increase their growth rate.
