TOPIC: Variegated Serissa

Variegated Serissa 10 months 2 weeks ago #31008

Afternoon all.
I've just bought this lovely little variegated serissa from my local garden centre.
They have a whole brand new section on bonsai with some very nice specimens on sale.
A couple are quite wounded by rusty wire but, all in all have lots of new growth on them.
So, what do I do with this new one?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

personally i think serissa a very hard tree to mantain, very sensitive. I had one that died and i didn´t understand why, but that was my experience not "all mighty truth". your serissa is very beautifull, the variegated has is beauty.
good luck

Looks like a good starter. I would like to see you get some good growth on it this spring and summer. Maybe in July you can update us with photos. Depending on how hot your August is, maybe a good trimming might be in order.
I like the play equipment in the background. I think my 2 yr old daughter wants to come over.

Not sure how to trim it yet! Any ideas?
Oh, our back garden is full of fun things! I make most of them too, like their mud kitchen made from pallets!
