Privet – Ligustrum Re-Pot

I can see light at the end of the tunnel as I slowly work my way through the re-potting of my trees.

This is my tall ligustrum in September last year. It has been in this pot for about 5 years and re-potting is long overdue.

Root congestion 


Reduced root mass

This is the re-potted tree. The image would probably have been balanced better if I had potted to the right of the pot rather than to the left. Too late now. The tree needs much more filling out with foliage. Should I keep the baby and go for a mother and child look.?

This is the lowest branch which is developing nicely. This year should see the ramification improve some more

    Mother and child? No, Not in your life time 😀 😀 Or mine for that matter!!

    I think you are right about a shift to the right as the apex is very far to the left side of the pot. If I was being picky 😉 I would also suggest a shallower glazed oval for it’s next pot. If you can double the ramification, especially toward the upper half, it will make a marked difference to the image.
