A good root ball is fun to work with. This is especially true for varieties that produce fine roots as Yaupon holly. After removing the tree from its pot and starting to comb through the roots, I found it easy to sculpt the root ball in the exact way I wanted. This makes it easy transplant as the rootball can be pruned to fit exactly the pot.

With roots ready to go all that remained was to select a pot. But the pot to use? It turns out that had a lot of options for this tree, and once I started, Boon contributed several more to try. Candidates are below – I will publish I selected Fridays. His favorite?
