recently I had fun repotting a few plants…

used soil from a dead plant that was in the basement…

first up was the avocado… it has been looking a bit sad and after doing some research it seemed like time to increase the size of the container… good thing because it was root bound…

it is also getting leggy, and I am trying a technique to get it to bush out a bit more… we shall see…

next was the Japanese Maple… the kids brought it from BC when they moved to Ottawa so it has been in the same pot for eight years…

it took a lot of muscle to remove it, and for a few minutes I thought I’d have to cut it out, lol… no rocks, so I used coffee filters for the bottom…

it has many tiny roots and it took a knife to scarify it so that it will grow better in the new container…

finally, I planted a piece of the mandevilla which had accidentally been cut off and put into water to root…

it looks cute and we will see how it does;-)…
