I'd like to introduce myself i resently bought a chinese elm (Ulmus parvifolia)it came on the 13/02/06 from a e-bayer seller. I'm delighted with the little fellow he looks healthy and got some good features, just hope i can keep him that way . I've never kept any planets before or anything, so now I will see if my fingers are really green. No serioulsy I watered the bonsai when i first unpacked him and I have put it on display in my front room window. I have bought a book with the tree, and I want to know how I can give the tree the best care etc. What do i do next with general care cutting/pruning/pinching or am i going to fast....?
