Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Cornwall

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 plant that is growing. To address this issue, a process of bonsai repotting and root pruning must be carried out. The root system will be reorganized by it and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for many years. Tips in the next article provides you with an overview on how to perform bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you need to test whether it is already the time for repotting that is bonsai. When the tree remains in dormancy, this needs to be done every year during early spring. Gradually ease the tree from its own pot and analyze the rootball. In case you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be implemented.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will be put, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing 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 earth, where the tree will likely be planted, and then to permit draining.

When the pot is prepared, the following part of the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old soil in the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also look for almost any roots that are dead, decaying, wounded or infected, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root

Finally place the tree inside the pot that is prepared and tie it with the wire that is anchorage, to ensure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, to help it settle.

With the bonsai repotting operation complete, the tree will now need about six weeks for regeneration. After that, its root system is likely to be able to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will definitely translate into more essential nutrients feeding your precious plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its beauty.
