English Elm Native Bonsai Material
Ulmus procera. Much sought after and one of the U.Ks finest deciduous species for bonsai the English elm is a great and rewarding tree to grow as bonsai. (see Colin Lewis's book The Art of Bonsai Design).
Procera 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 into akadama. This will keep the trees vigour high. Mature trees can be left two or three years between re-potting. Autumn will see the tree put on a splendid display of yellow colour before leaf drop.
Early days yet but this is a superb craggy elm with a nice big trunk. Potted for the second time last spring and now well established and growing very strongly. Could easily be air layered to produce another little tree from it's top part.
17" tall above it's pot. 21" wide overall. 6" across the trunk base.
Planted in a plastic nursery pot.
