Keeping very old bark on hawthorns even when it rains all year!

One of the problems with living in a wet country is that the old bark on your bonsai soon turns to a soggy mush. One way that I have slowed and in some cases stopped the ‘rot’ has been to position the tree in a windy spot on the garden, ensuring good air movement around the tree. AND if I can also keep the tree in full sun the bark remains silver in colour.
