i just bought a chinese elm and it was raised in mississippi for 15 years as an outside tree. i am just wondering if after the leaves fall off if it will be ok in a dark garage if the temp stayes between 32 F and 45F ?

That is exactly where to put it, but don't go by when the leaves fall off. In Buffalo, leave it outside until just before Thanksgiving, or when night temperatures go below 28 F. There is a very active Buffalo Bonsai Society. Be sure to join them.

I have about 23 trees, but only half of those are fit to be called bonsai.
I'm in the Syracuse area, with Bonsai Club of Central NY. We are having our show the end of September. You can get all the details on our web site. http://sites.google.com/site/cnybonsai/

ya its ALOT bigger than i thought (about28 inches). its going on a trip with me to hollow creek on the 21 st for some professional opinions. the only things that im not to fond of is that it looks like it was cut in half at one point with no paste to heal the wound (you can see the heartwood) also it was wired poorley into the pot and you can see wires on both sides of the trunk. ill post some more pics if i have time if not ill post some of the "after" pics.

The tie-down wires just about always show, since that is about the last thing you do after the tree is potted. You will see when you get your first potting lesson.
It doesn't matter now, since you will not be showing your tree yet. After it is trained and repotted, you will check shortly before you want to show it, & see if it wobbles. Elms root in pretty fast. You may be able to cut off one or both wires before you show it. But don't worry if you can't. They are allowed in a show & you can partly hide them with moss.

thank you very much for that bit of information. it seems no matter how much i read, i just need to dive in and know that im gona kill some trees Sad . i think that is one of my biggest problems i HATE the idea of killing trees. i even water friends house plants when im over if the plant needs it.

Behind every green thumb is a large pile of dead bodies. The biggest experts kill trees all the time. In order to make a perfect three-egg omelet, you need to break at least 16 eggs. Twisted Evil

SUBLIME ,The scars you are worring about are typleical sp.. with a trunk chop.you can hollow out the center makeing sure water will not stay in the scar also i have been told if you lightly trim the live area around the chop ever so often it will close over quicker.... you said you bought this elm in kentucky...i would like to know where and are they really high priced...i live in west virginia close to the ky. state line and would like to check this place out.. i really like your tree.do not forget to post it after the work shop...thanks john
