A relative has a loquat tree and she has given me some seed. Is it possible to create a bonsai tree from the easy to germinate loquat seedlings. I know they have big leaves but perhaps it is possible to make the bonsai large enough for this to be only a small problem.

Definitely yes. But as you say, the leaves are very big so you’d have to make a big bonsai for it to have any appeal. Starting from seeds, this’ll take you only a few decades.

I have had a few loquats that started from seeds, in relatively big pots. I’m just playing around, and if one of these years they bear fruit, I’m happy with that. I have no intention to even try to make bonsai out of them.
