Title: A bonsai to save!! Help, please!
Post by: Tsveta on May 13, 2013, 09:29 AM
Hello everyone,

I was given this bonsai to save for free by a lovely owner a flower shop who was afraid it will die. The tree was fine till recently, I saw it two weeks ago in the shop and it was green, it looked good but very misshapen as it hasn't been pruned for too long. We discussed it'll be probably good idea to cut it back a bit. She did a major styling job but apparently the bonsai didn't like it and some of the leaves started drying out and others went yellow... What is to be done now...?!

Also, can you confirm what type is this bonsai. Is it a Chinese Elm?

Thanks a million!
