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 dawn redwood will need to be re-potted once every two years if it is young, while 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/.

Redwoods have a strong and vigorous root system that tolerates heavy pruning, and you can cut back the roots aggressively, but try not to remove more than 25% of the root mass to encourage new growth. It is important that the soil mix you choose for the new pot is 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/.
