    How to proceed with this Chinese elm?

    I took this branch-tip cutting from a Chinese elm on a university campus in late May 2023. It rooted, but didn't start pushing new growth till around the first of October, when, after an almost continuously cloudy late summer, we had a string of bright sunny days and temperatures above 80 F...

    No growth this summer

    Hey this summer my chinese elm has had very limited growth. The growth that it has had is very brittle and often develops yellow/transparent spots and eventually falls off. Last year i had light green long shoots growing basically on a day to day basis, but this year the new shoots rarely make...

    Zelkova Serrata or Ulmus Parvifolia?

    This was sold as an Ulmus Parvifolia and then came with a sticker that said "Zelkova Parvifolia". I have read what I can find about their differences but still feel unsure. Most important is it to know if it's a Zelkova or an Ulmus, as I will be keeping it outdoors in Norway through the winter...

    Beginner with too many questions? Probably..

    Hi everyone, Was always interested in bonsai and got really into it after attending a local show and joining the local club. Held off on buying anything off the bat since I wanted to research more, but was able to score a cedar elm and Chinese elm seedling from a door drawing during the meeting...

    Ulmus parvifolia (A) progression

    I’m working on a longer term informal upright Chinese elm. I purchased the tree in early 2012 and its first three years were subpar due to my noob usage (“learning opportunity”) of subpar soil material (too organic), inadequate pot sizing, and poor timing of pruning. Tiny tree, mid-2012...

    Tiny Elm

    I found this little guy at a local garden center. I was attracted to it because it had the thickest trunk and I saw an opportunity to chop it for taper. Since the chop, it's put out some strong growth, although not in the most desirable locations along the bends. Maybe spring will bring some new...
