As the growing season draws toward it’s close I thought that this little blackthorn had progressed enough this year to remove it from the pot that it should never have been in and transfer it into a more suitable pot.
Needless to say this was done without disturbing the root ball as far as possible.
The new pot looks smaller than the old one but actually has a little more room because of it is slightly deeper and has straight sides.
The original pot was not a good choice. The new one is slightly better but may well be replaced at a future date as the tree matures.
