First Repot of the Year

First bit of repotting for this year was at club night on Friday. This is a two year old cutting from a Serissa Foetida , a popular indoor bonsai species.

Rootbound

I gave it a pretty good raking out

Excellent lateral roots

The roots were spread and any upwardly growing ones removed. The thicker ones were shortened.

Into a deeper than normal pot for training purposes. The straight trunk removed. Hope to make a nice wee mame bonsai out of it in future.
