Back in March 2017 we decided as a club to purchase a number of small Chinese Elms in order that anyone wanting to join in could have one of the small trees and see what they could do with it as a project. We all started with the same species, size and rough style of tree and they were all catalogued and photographed by Derek for reference as time goes on. The aim was to see what different approaches club members would do with their Elm trees and how they responded to the various techniques and different feeding regimes that would be used. It has only been a year but the results so far have been fascinating. Further updates to follow of each tree and its development for 2019.
