Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Epping
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, restricting further development necessary to support the growing plant. To address this problem, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be carried out. It enable the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for a long time and will reorganize the root system. Suggestions in the next article will give you an overview on the best way to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you have to test whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This must be done annually during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gradually ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. Should you see long roots encircling the rootball or the interior side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a new pot, in which the tree will probably be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic mesh, securing it using a piece of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, where the tree will be planted, and then to permit emptying.

Another part of the bonsai repotting process will be to displace the old soil from the rootball, rather using chopsticks when the pot is ready. Then prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also look for any roots that are dead, decaying, injured or infected, and remove them too to refrain from distributing root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.
Eventually put the tree in the prepared pot and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to be sure that it won't be rocked by wind in the forthcoming weeks, when its roots are not yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, to help it settle.
The tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration, with the bonsai repotting operation whole. After that, its root system will probably have the ability to develop growing more fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what might be performed with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your plant that is cherished, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy and your enjoyment of its attractiveness.
