Deciduous trees

Postby lmrk » Sun Feb 03, 2008 1:16 pm

Hi all

Have a number of deciduous bonsais in training (maples, oak, zelkova, ginkgo and chinese elms). Just wondering approximately when they generally start losing their leaves? Never had any deciduous trees before, so don't want to misinterpret sickness from seasonal leaf dropping. The reason I'm asking this is because both of my Chinese elms are losing leaves at the moment (turning yellow and dropping off). Not a huge number, but enough to make me concerned as they haven't been losing leaves at all for the last 5 months.


Does a watched bonsai ever grow?

Dont worry too much Leah as some deciduous trees, especially elms,will drop their leaves mid to late summer if they get too much water,just reduce watering and they will be ok.

Sorry for the short answer,my keyboard is playing up :(
