Watering European ashTenere asciutto
Letís frequently check the soil of our bonsai, to avoid it from remaining dry for long periods of time. Water rarely, about once every 10-11 days with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Generalities European ash
These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown. The European ash is medium in size and 90 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a green colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The European ash has a shrub- like development.

Exposure European ashPosizione mezza ombra
It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. Letís remember that bonsai usually are grown in quite contained containers; this is why we suggest moving the vases in a slightly shaded place during the hottest weeks of the summer.These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.

Treatments European ash
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil European ash
These plants need a substratum with an excellent drainage.
