 The Satmarer Rebbe R.Yoilish zt"l used to say:
" When Israelis (Tziyoinim) say HAKOL BESEDER, they forget that at the Seder, there is also Marror ."

                           Tu Bishvat Seder

Some Mekubalim and Chasidic Rebbes have a Tu B'Shvat Seder with 
some similarities to the Seder Shel Pesach. 

Some claim, The origin of the Tu Bishvat Seder is from the Ari Zal. 
In his Kesovim there is no mention of a Seder on Tu Bishvat.

The first one to mention this Seder is the Sefer Chemdas HaYomim. 

There is a whole Perek instructing how to perform the Seder.

"Various Perakim from Tanach and Zohar are to be said. Four

cups of different wines are drunk. Mezonos and fruits are eaten. Before

each fruit you have Kavanah of a different Tziruf of the Shem Havyah."

In 1753, this Perek was reprinted as a separate Kunteres called

"Kunteres Pri Eitz Hadar"  Since then, it has been reprinted many 


The Sefer Chemdas Hayomim was printed without a Sha'ar Blatt.

The Ya'avetz claimed that the Mechaber was the Navi Sheker

Noson Hoazosi, the right hand man of Shabtai Zvi  Ym"s.

There were Gedolim who disputed the Ya'avetz and claimed

the Sefer was written by an unknown holy man.

The Chemdas Hayomim writes to have Kavanah at the Seder ,
                                                                                                                      " העץ הנחמד בן ישי חי על האדמה

Some claimed, this to be the same Gematria as Shabtai Zvi's

(317=315+2) . Also     העץ הנחמד = 390 the same as שצ 

This gave Chizuk to the side who claimed the Sefer is from

Noson Hoazosi.

The publisher of the Amsterdam edition  who was aware

of the controversy, wrote in the Hakdama
