2 Wych Elms (ulmus glabra)

2 absolute beginners or raw material. Very glad for this new species in my collection of native trees.
They were still in nursery container, and it took 2 hours to clean out the rootball.
Put back in downsized container, for another 2 or 3 years before moving to a bonsai pot.

I specifically selected this material. It may seem a bit awkward or weird choice for some bonsai enthusiasts. Sure you will have noticed I am not aiming for a typical bonsai tree. Offcourse this year they can grow freely. More pruning will be caried out after this, I take no chances and gladly risk losing 1 year in development. As long as they gain vigour first...

Long is the road, with lots of work ahead but thats fun offcourse.
