    New Bonsai Chinese elm

    I went to Garland's in Corvallis (can't recommend enough!) And bought a Chinese elm in a pot. Looks to me to be about 5 years old (I could and probably am so WRONG). I enjoy the trunk which is why I bought it but upon further inspection it looks like it was planted quite deep in the pot? I...

    Hello. New to this forum looking for help about a Chinese Elm. The soil stays damp for at least a week, sometimes longer.
