very old elm-first potting

Post  abcd on Thu Mar 01, 2012 8:04 pm

First potting for this very old tree, airlayering made five years ago, the recovery has been difficult thing, completely hollow trunk, a crown in fact.
The cracked bark is beautiful , the pot is not a final pot, a square pot, flared, pale blue, with curved edges would be better, the head and the ramifications remain to be built, wust be patient.

Very nice tree. I think you will be happier with your photographs if you either do not use the flash, or if you sit the tree a bit farther from the wall, so that distracting shadow isn't so prominent.

Also, 'twould be nice if you'd edit your profile to give us an idea where you're from.

That is very nice! I love the bark and the movement. Should make an excellent bonsai in a short time. Please keep us posted.
