Bonsai Re-potting for Beginners in Lancaster
For each bonsai tree, eventually comes a time when its root system has taken all the space in the pot, limiting additional development needed to support the plant that is growing. To address this issue, a process of root pruning and bonsai repotting must be performed. It will reorganize the root system and allow the tree to grow healthy and vigorously for several years. Suggestions in the next article will provide you with an overview how to do bonsai repotting by yourself.
First, you should check on whether it is already the time for bonsai repotting. This needs to be done annually during early spring, when the tree is still in dormancy. Gently ease the tree out of its pot and analyze the rootball. It's already the time for bonsai repotting to be executed if you see long roots encircling the inner side of the pot or the rootball.
Prepare a brand new pot, where the tree will be planted, or clean the old one. Cover with a plastic net, fixing it with a bit of wire. Then put a layer of grit on the underside of the pot, to allow draining, and after that on top of it a layer of earth, where the tree will be put.

When the pot is ready, the next part of the bonsai repotting procedure will be to displace the old earth from the rootball, preferably using chopsticks. Then prune the longest roots with a sharp pair of shears or scissors. Also search for any roots that are decaying, dead, injured or infected, and remove them too to avoid spreading root rot. Aim to remove up to 1/3 of general mass. that is root
Eventually put the tree in the pot that is prepared and tie it with the anchorage wire, to make sure that wind won't rocks it in the coming weeks, when its roots are not yet fully regenerated. Fill the remaining portion of the pot with fresh soil, ensuring that there are no air pockets. Water the compost thoroughly, 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 will be able to develop freely, growing more fine feeder roots in a denser rootball, than what might be achieved with unpruned roots. This will translate into more essential nutrients feeding your beloved plant, and in effect its improved health, vibrancy along with your enjoyment of its attractiveness.
