Answer: bonsai


Dear Giuseppe,
pruning and repotting are fundamental operations to obtain a beautiful and well-developed bonsai; they are, however, to be carried out at the right time of the year, to avoid having suffering plants, subject to diseases, or even to avoid compromising their development.
Maintenance pruning, which involves the shortening of small buds or branches of little importance, is carried out throughout the arc of the anus; the most drastic prunings, those carried out only once a year, to form the crown, are practiced when the plants are in vegetative rest, total or partial, then in autumn (October-November), or at the end of winter (January-February) ; the month of March is not very suitable for drastic pruning operations, because the plant is already in full vegetative growth.
A pruning practiced in this period would bring excessive stress to the plant, and an excessive loss of lymph or resin.
Also the repottings are practiced when the plants are in vegetative rest, since in changing the vase in general one goes also to prune the roots; so generally this operation is done in late winter or late spring, when the plants are not yet, or are no longer, in the midst of their spring awakening. To move a plant from the nursery pot to the semi-definitive bonsai pot it is good to wait until late spring, in June-July; or this operation is carried out in February-March, but only if the plant has not already begun to swell the buds.
When you move a bonsai from a prebonsai pot to the bonsai pot, you usually practice a strong pruning of the roots, so it is therefore advisable to keep the plant in ideal conditions for its development, avoiding the scorching sun for many hours a day.
