Warning: even though this is the middle of November, I want you to know I repotted this tree two and a half weeks ago. When I was looking in the garden, I saw this tree has some broken down soil and it appeared root-bound. Below is the tree:
You may recognize this tree... Time to take the tree out of the pot.
Time to wash the soil off.
All of the soil is washed off. I expected more roots.
Now I will do a little root trim:
All trimmed, I picked out a nice blue pot. Here is the after picture:
Notice how I didn't wire out the whole tree. I didn't wire it out because I did cut some roots and when I repotted it, it was October. The nights will get cooler. I also didn't want to harm the tree or brake any week branches. I want the tree to flush out with growth.
The tree in November has new buds and is growing. I'll post an update soon.
