Details

Wych elm (Ulmus glabra) has the largest range of all European elms and occurs from Ireland in the west right out to the Urals in the east and up to the arctic circle. Also known as Scotch elm. It's a little coarser than Ulmus procera but also considerably more vigorous, faster growing and much more robust and tolerant of adverse conditions. Leaves are slightly larger than English elm but in all other respects it can be treated the same. Glabra is fully hardy in all parts of the U.K and grows vigorously thus allowing fast development. For young trees in the early stages of development it is best to re-pot every year, his will keep the trees vigour high. Mature trees can be left two years between re-potting. Fertilise this variety regularly throughout the growing season and always water very well.

Autumn will see the tree put on a splendid display of yellow colour before leaf drop.

Collected near Doncaster years ago. We bought this tree from it's original owner over ten years ago. It was sold to one of our workshop guys who rather overdid it with fertiliser, this resulted in the death of a large proportion of the trunk. The tree was subsequently sold and we believe had a stint in the hands of Corin Tomlinson who extensively carved the dead parts. We think it then went through a couple of owners the last of which presided over the collapse of the deadwood. Over summer the tree arrived right back here, all the rotten wood gone and looking rather beautiful in a weird gothic wildwood sort of way. Needs re-potting next spring.

Planted in an unglazed stoneware bonsai pot.
