Thanks Scott, I will gently remove more weeds and follow the repotting guides to repot in spring. Is there a specific soil I need
? What about sunlight ... I recently placed the pot at a window where it can have more hours of direct sunlight.
'opabinia51' suggested I pull the plant out to see if the root ball takes up the entire pot, and if so prune some roots. What is the best way to prune the roots? While doing some reading from the site, it was reccommended that only one activity 'care' should be done at a time, so maybe I can prune some roots now and repot in spring
- do you think this is good?
The Helpful Gardener wrote:Repotting is definitely the problem, along with those weeds. Both conditions are not leaving room for water in the pot, the weeds are competing for what is there, and the tree is starting to show it.
Do not repot now; wait until spring. But do some weeding and water a bit more than seems necessary to get the tree through until then...
