Best Way to Start: Ginkgo Maidenhair Biloba Bonsai Seedling

I have recently purchased a Ginkgo Maidenhair Biloba Bonsai Seedling Tree 6-12 inches tall ( don't know yet as it hasn't arrived yet).

Does anyone have any good way to start as i am new to this. Thanks

pdgamember,

Such a young specimen will probably have to be grown out for years before much in the way of bonsai styling can begin. Although bonsai can be 'grown up' many ,if not most, quality trees are 'cut down' from larger, more mature, material. If you are determined to grow young material you have a long row to hoe.
