Watering ElmTenere asciutto
We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets 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 Elm
These plants have an erect, columnar development. The Elm is medium in size and 10 m in height; in the summer it assumes a yellowgreen colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Elm develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree.

Exposure ElmSole pieno
the Elm should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.The the Elm should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

Treatments Elm
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 Elm
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
