Description

Repotting your tree is an important way to provide a fresh and suitable soil mix and ensure appropriate root health. Repot in early spring. Generally, your cotoneaster will need to be re-potted every year if it is young and older ones can stay in their pots for longer. However, you should always check if it has become root-bound before you change pots. You can do this by lifting the tree gently out of the pot by the main trunk and examining the root system. You will know it is ready if you can see that the roots are circling around each other and the pot. If, however, they still appear contained in the soil, you should place it back and wait until the following spring to check again.

Trees that are ready for repotting will require root pruning, a suitable new pot and appropriate soil mix. For a step-by-step guide on these topics please visit www.miyagibonsai.co.uk/blog/

The cotoneaster roots can tolerate considerable pruning and you should also remove the old soil using a soil rake, ready for the fresh mix. It is important that the soil mix you choose is slightly more ‘sandy’ and well-draining, and we tend to use a mixture of different speciality bonsai soils on our trees. Every species is different so please contact us for free soil-mix advice or to take advantage of our re-potting service, visit www.miyagibonsai.co.uk/services/.
