I've no doubt that this type of query occurs on this forum too regularly, but I would just like someone to set my mind at ease, or give me some pointers!
My girlfriend bought me a bonsai tree as a house warming gift, and as I used to keep bonsai trees, this was a great gift for me. However, this was from a shop in London, and I live in the North...I have had it for a month now, and I notice that the tree is losing leaves, however there are quite a few new shoots growing all over the tree. I have pruned these as appropriate, and there are more still growing, so I guess overall the tree is healthy...I am inclined to think that the loss of leaves is due to change of climate. I have been very careful with the amount of water I give the tree, and have never let it completely dry out. What could be the cause of this? Would very much appreciate any advice and thanks in advance. The tree is Chinese Elm by the way!
