I ordered two Golden Elm (Ulmus Wredei) a couple of weeks ago as i want something to grow against the fence at the back of my garden to help hide the house that overlooks us.Anyway,i saw this photo and thought they looked just the job.

 They arrived this morning.Now i know they'd come as small saplings so wasn't expecting great things but i have to say,i'm slightly disappointed at what came.

 At £30 for two ... 

Do you think they'll ever get to look like the first photo? To be honest,ive bought better plants at Morrisons but unfortunately,they didn't have Golden Elm.

No you're not alone Salino.Snails take a short flight onto the grass the other side of my garden wall. No doubt they come straight back but i have the satisfaction of making them use a detour to get to my plants and any small slugs i rely on the frogs and hedgehogs to keep in check.There's been a few times i've had to put up with lace Hostas but it's worth it

Talking of slugs...  I remember my first introduction to gardening when i was six or seven.My mother would send me out with a tub of salt,specially after rain.Happy days

Thank you all for your replies.Yes i'm afraid it was an impulse buy  

I have so many things in various pots just waiting to be planted out but there's only so much i can get done between work shifts.My garden was abandoned when i left for a year or so (divorce forced me to move out for a while) and i'm afraid the whole thing got away.I'm working steadily to restore it to it's former glory but it's tough going,even in a small garden!

Meanwhile,my impulse buying will no doubt continue and i shall look to you all for help, if you don't mind

I work at Morrisons and buy most of my plants there.  Great value for money if i do say so myself

I was thinking of growing this in a large tub,mainly because i'm not sure where it's going to end up permanently.Does anyone have one and will it survive ?
