LucR, I am living in flat on the 2nd floor and we don't have any garden at our flat ( like a community garden). I am a bit scared that people might take the bonsai tree or damage it when its outside. If we had a private garden then it would have been ideal, but unfortunately not in this case.
Hi there , I have attached 2 pictures of my instruction card that I got with my Bonsai. It says Zelkova Guaranteed real Bonsai. ( sorry for it being a bit dirty, grabbed it out my dustbin). So is my tree a Chinese elm or Japanese Elm, if the tree is a Chinese Elm then why do I have Zelkova card then, this is the bit that confuses me?

Long story short: Either they lied or they have no idea what they are talking about. But.. You can verify yourself. Go to a website about Zelkova (And not, not bonsai, just zelkova serrata) and compare the leaves. Then do the same thing for ulmus parviflora.
As for the "Guaranteed real bonsai".. There is some discussion possible too.
