As indicated in a recent post it has been a few years since this tree was last re-potted so today was the day
The root mass was packed full and was almost rock hard and took a long time to tease out. It was too much for a chopstick and I had to resort to my metal root hook to do the job. Nevertheless I got the job done in the end and successfully re-potted the tree. It should do well this year and I will need to make sure it is not left as long again. I notice that Harry Harrington recommends re-potting every year.
After a bit of a trim back into the greenhouse for a couple more weeks or at least until I get the benches scrubbed and cleaned of green moss etc.It’s just too cold to be working with cold water at the moment.
