a bunch of them, sort of dead, or close to it. Or was that your point?

I think you are referring to the Larix spp. They drop their leaves in winter ;)

Nice work! I understand the difficulties involved in growing from seed, as I have attempted several species in the more recent years. Even after only a few years growth, a little wringing and creatively, your seedlings could well become really cool Mame. If I may ask, what can you tell me about the gray stones in the background of your photos. They look like a smooth ying stone...or are they your finds? Just curious, as many bonsai enthusiasts, like yourself, are always on the lookout for interesting stones...

I found these on my numerous expeditions in the hot and sweaty aquarium shops in the lowlands of holland. ;)

Ohw, that's no fun. Why did they die? Did you move them? Trim them back? Anything you can add to help others avoid having the same experience?

i cut the roots in a circle around the tree to stimulate new roots closer to the trunk. 6 weeks later, i tossed a lot of new vertilicer in my garden, as usual. But some pieces stayed hanging between the buds. The buds where burnt and it was more powerful than i thought, also cats love to spray in my garden on that spot particular. The rest was fine except those two.

Update on my seedlings,
Nearly a year has past. I planted a few acres palmatums and 2 japanese spruce, Picea koyamae.
I gave away a lot to clubmembers and the rest ended up in the bin. I didn't have the time or space for it. The pines and larch had a good year, especially my pines gained a lot of grid in the long hot summer. There 1.5 m tall. I have to think, if i am going to cut them this year or the next year. I dug up my alnus last year and i'm a bit lost with that tree. When i'm doing a hard prune, it backbuds on the side branche and sprouts from the roots. I was hoping on some buds low on the main trunk to make a new leader, the nebari is good. So in the spring i will chop it low on the main trunk. The thickest larix wil be dug up this spring and relocate or i will put it in a big wooden crate.
