It’s time for a smaller pot

bonsai general - 32 views



trunk was formed first, then work on the branches. That’s what I think about the development of bonsai. If the trunk has not yet reached its final size, the use of large pots and encourage vigorous growth. When I’m happy with the trunk, I move to smaller potted trees and focus on refinement.

A number of my black pines turn 11 this year. A few have reached the desired size of the trunk. I’ve been slowly removing large branches of escape and now I’m ready to move the trees to smaller pots.

Generally, if the soil is good, it is easy to use a smaller pot than the root ball will along fine roots. If not, the tree will have to stay in a medium-sized pot until roots develop fine enough to support the tree in a smaller space.

These are two of the 11-year-old pines repotted this winter – both were grown container

Yes, northern California is in the middle of a mild winter and most of my pine trees are already growing. As repotted these trees a month ago, I can begin to fertilize now to ensure they are strong enough to be decandled come spring.
