Bonsai Repotting for Beginners in Milton

For every bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development required to support the plant that is growing. To address this issue, an operation of root pruning and bonsai repotting should be performed. It is going to reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow vigorously and healthy for several years. Tricks in the following post will give you an overview about how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.

First, you must check whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done every year during early springtime, when the tree remains in dormancy. Gently ease the tree from its pot and examine the rootball. If you see long roots encircling the rootball or the inner side of the pot, it's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed.
Prepare a fresh pot, when the tree will likely be put, or clean the old one. Cover using a plastic net, securing it with a bit of wire. Then place a layer of grit on the bottom of the pot, on top of it a layer of soil, on which the tree will be planted, after which to permit emptying.

When the pot is prepared, the next step in the bonsai repotting process is to displace the old land from your rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Prune the longest roots using a sharp pair of scissors or shears. Also search for almost any wounded, dead, decaying or infected roots, and remove them too to refrain from dispersing root rot. Plan to remove up to 1/3 of general root mass.

Eventually place the tree inside the prepared pot and tie it with the anchorage wire, to be sure that it will not be rocked by wind in the coming weeks, when its roots aren't yet completely regenerated. Fill the rest of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring there are no air pockets. Water the compost completely, 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 is going to be able to develop growing fine feeder roots in a more compact rootball, than what could be achieved with unpruned roots. This can translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy as well as your enjoyment of its beauty.
