Looking for a source of ulmus parvifolia seedlings

Post  timahlen on Sat Dec 24, 2011 9:29 pm

Hi All,
I need to do some root grafting and am looking for a good source for ulmus parvifolia seedlings in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area, or a reliable mail order outfit. Anyone know of a nursery that stocks them?

Hi Tim, you might check Dallas Bonsai Gardens. They don't list them, but they may have seedlings not ready for sale yet. I know my favorite, forestfarm.com, lists a few tubes for $12.95, a most reliable source.

I don't know if it will do you any good or not, but I can get you all the seed you could want for free.

Why are you grafting elms? Just curious.

Check out Matt Ouwinga at Kaede Bonsai-en he has great stock at a great price and will usually hook you up pretty nice, I've gotten excellent stock from him as have several others on BCI

Thanks, All. I live about three miles from Dallas Bonsai. I'll give them a call next week. The other suggestions will serve as second choice.

Russell, I have a mature elm I've tended for about 20 years. When I first got it, its roots were like a three-legged stool, so I airlayered it to develop the nebari. It did really well, except for a couple of bare spots that calloused over and now won't put out any roots. Root grafts are about the only thing that will fix it. Thanks for the seed offer. I know Dallas Bonsai has them-- I just didn't want to wait another year for the seedlings to develop.

Merry Christmas All,
Tim

If you damage the callused area and apply Rootone, I bet you get roots.

Jim,

I've actually tried that for the last five years in every combination and permutation of methods I know. Last summer, I came across an article that said that elms don't like to put out new roots from calloused tissue. I don't know if it's right or not, but it's convinced me to try root grafting! Very Happy

Merry Christmas!
Tim

Hi Tim, How did the root grafting turn out? Any pics?
