Feeding your bonsai
We have just received the following question about feeding bonsai from a customer:
I have just purchased a Elm Bonsai tree (see photograph)
I was wondering if you could tell me how often do i need to feed it with fertilizer?
Thank you for your order and your question.
This is actually a really good question.
I would recommend that you always use a bonsai fertiliser becuase other fertilisers may be too strong and burn the roots.
Secondly; please follow the manufacturers instructions because different fertilisers have different strengths.
If you are using the liquid bonsai feed, that we stock, I would recommend feeding this bonsai once a fortnight now and once a week in the spring in summer, when the Chinese Elm bonsai is actively growing.
This will keep your bonsai strong & healthy.
I hope this helps
