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 ready for it's first steps to becoming bonsai. Potted for two years from air layering and now well established and growing very strongly. An unusual elm that's going to be absolutely brilliant according to Graham.

28" tall above it's pot. 29" wide overall. 7" diameter nebari.

Planted in a plastic nursery pot.
