I've got a Chinese elm bonsi which has a great shape but I've noticed the leaves are only growing at the end of the branches.
Any advice most welcome,thanks kevin.
My guess would be lack of water. I was given a Chinese Elm bonsai (one of those cheap ones produced by the million sole in every supermarket) and it looked poorly until I put it in the garden. Doing fine ever since...I put a money plant in the bonsai pot and tray and it is a much better plant for that location.
I was given one of those bonsai elms 12 years ago as part of a birthday present. I planted it out in the garden and it is now a fine, healthy, mixed hedging plant that I keep at about 4'6" high.
