Hagedorn on Repotting: Well Worth Passing Along!

     I don't usually re-blog. I think you already know how to find the content you like, and that it's better to write my own and try to make it worthy of your time.

But this post by Michael Hagedorn of Cratageus Bonsai is just too good: solid, experience-based information and advice, and  well written, too. So click on the link below to benefit from some of what
Michael Hagedorn learned in his 2-1/2 years in Japan.

I take exception to what Michael has to say in just one area, and it's an area in which, I believe, he claims no experience. Tropical trees, in general, can stand more trauma than temperate-zone trees can, so -- again, in general -- the boundaries are wider. For example, I regularly bare-root my Ficus and they do just fine. But when it comes to temperate-native trees -- listen up!

Yes, I wish I'd thought of a picture like this myself! -- SM
