Collecting in the wild
« on: December 20, 2019, 12:48 AM »
Although it’s in the wild, in this case, it’s my back yard.
I’d like to know how to cut down the root ball to fit a bonsai pot.
In more detail the knowledge of the percentage of what to cut and time frame, the time between cutting more to complete it.
