Wow so many experts on here with all sorts of belts etc etc and no advice for a Newbie shame on you all.
What waste of time even bothering to post.

I would re -pot it

I doesn't look as bad as they can often get

it is normal for it to loose some leaves at this time of year.
That compost isn't the best, but if all you have, maybe add a bit more grit, to make sure it has enough drainage

Thank you very much for your advice just wanted to get done thoughts if I’m going in the right direction . I did exactly that I removed them this morning crumbled away the soil from the root ball. Mixed some of then new soil with the grit a lot of grit. Replaced the trees and watered well. They are now sitting outside in the cold not the easing things to do to a tree that’s spent all summer in the house. I have to listen to the advice given though as you’d all more experienced than me.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

People do have lives to live and don't just sit on a computer waiting to answer your questions....although you have already been given some good advice. With the attitude you've just displayed I wish now I hadn't thrown in my advice...............

Your questions have been asked many, many times in the past. Have you even considered on using the search facility at the top of the site??

Also it would help us to know where in the World you are in your profile? Add it using the Control Panel.

You never know there might even be a bonsai club just down the road from you.

Let’s clear a couple of things up here. Firstly if anyone has been upset or offended by my question of how to save my Bonsai then I apologise. Also if anyone had been offended by my posting pictures and asking how would be the best way to save the trees ie putting outside, frost effect, rain etc etc I also apologise. If as has been said I have given a bad attitude for asking for a response two days after posting then I also apologise although it was only an observation and with no intent whatsoever to cause offence to anyone .
I totally understand we are all busy with our own lives, jobs, children, own businesses, companies, empires and other such life things. I believe I mentioned in previous posts that I may not answer until I had time due to other commitments in which again I apologised for.

In my posts I believe I have always tried to be respectful by thanking those who have offered advice with respect and gratitude . I also agree yes SOME of my questions have been answered. I understand also these questions must have been asked before on the site and it must be boring for the more experienced to answer. In short I had only started to struggle with the trees and thought I would post in the BONSAI HELP FOR ALL section to see if I could find a way to get better.
I do thank those who have offered advice yet again and those who seem to be a little disgruntled I yet again apologise for asking for help.

Chinese Elm is notoriously good at surviving so you probably won't lose this tree even if it loses most of its leaves. Or even all of them.

They survive outside over winter, better than indoors, as long as the wind doesn't blow it off a shelf and as long as the soil isn't water-logged when it freezes which could cause the roos to get punctured.

If you keep it indoors, like you said in a south facing window, it might be getting enough light but it needs to get cold too so that it can rest for 2 or 3 months.

Perhaps you have already picked up this advice by now, but I find it's still helpful to consider. A huge requirement for bonsai is to practice patience. Often what you observe on a bonsai now is the result of ongoing conditions 6 weeks ago or more (though not always). This means usually drastic action is not required even if you are desperate to see an improvement.

There are only a few scenarios that do require drastic action: e.g. if you observe a fungal infection, or a pest infestation. I can't really see in your pics but it doesn't look like these are your tree's problem. So maybe it doesnt actually have a problem. If you want to you could slip-pot to a bigger pot then plonk it outside if you can. I bet it will be budding beautifully again in spring.
