The Chinese Elm is one of the most common varieties of Bonsai and one of our most popular. Elms grows fast making it easy to build up a dense foliage mass by pruning alone within a few years. With them being quite an adaptable species they are more tolerant to imperfect growing conditions. Fortunately, due to their natural vigour they are very good at recovering from accidental neglect, making the Elms perfectly suited to beginners.
Informal Form:This form is the most commonly seen in Bonsai and in nature. It can be used for most tree species. The trunk can twist, turn and change direction with a number of bends along its length though the growth is basically upwards. We understand that Bonsai need extra maintenance in terms of pruning, feed and care so we now offer a bonsai care kit. See below.
We now provide a 3 Piece Bonsai Care Kit with bonsai feed, pruning scissors and our own Bonsai Care Guide.
