I’m a beginner and a neighbor gave me a little Chinese Elm today. I don’t anything about the care of this tree except what I learned through today’s online searches. My question is, is it OK to grow it outside here in Edmonds, Washington (just north of Seattle) throughout the year? We often get some fog in the morning (even today July 12) and some snow in the winter.
So far I’ve learned that
- it likes water everyday
- to fertilize it with a balanced fertilizer until late summer
- to give it full sun except during the hot summer months when filtered sun is preferred
- it can be grown inside or outside
- it doesn’t like systemic pesticides
Please correct me if any of the above is wrong.
