Repotting is probably the single most important and significant technique involved in the successful cultivation of bonsai trees.

Not only is autumn repotting possible here in New Zealand, but in some cases recommended.

Trees that flower in late winter or early spring, as well as evidence to support native tree repotting.

Hardy conifers can also do well, and fast growing varieties like willow and privet.

However the important difference from springtime root pruning is to cut less and do not overwater. Be careful in positioning the tree in display after repotting and watch the temperature. Basically aftercare is crucial.

As a preparation for our second club meeting and workshop taking place on 10th March, this is seasonal care and repotting. Look at your trees that may be suitable, bring tools, potting mix and pots. We can all compare thoughts and help each other.

See you there.
