I have just repotted my Hawthorn Air layer for the first time. The full story up until now can be read and seen HERE.
It was originally layered back in 2010 and it was now time to repot to enable me to removed the sphagnum moss that had been left intact so that the new roots wouldn’t be disturbed.
Plenty of root to work with
Buds swelling fast, a good time to repot.
Removal of the old stump below the layer point
Getting rid of the old sphagnum moss that will hold way too much water and will cause problems in the roots if left.
Potted up. It will get a full year and then some styling decisions will be made next year.
Another angle to show movement.
