At this point you may be wondering but what is the right season to repot bonsai ?

First of all, make sure if your bonsai is a deciduous one, such as the maple or the elm which loses its leaves in the vegetative rest period or if it is an evergreen, such as the olive or juniper and therefore maintains its vegetation all year round .

Deciduous bonsai

In the case of deciduous , it is necessary to act in the moment between the loss of the leaves and the opening of the first buds, roughly from late autumn to early spring.

Operating at this time will help preserve the integrity of future vegetation.

Furthermore, being at complete rest, in general, it is possible to prune the roots in a more drastic way, without this damaging the plant itself.

Evergreen bonsai

Contrary to deciduous, it requires a more contained pruning of the roots, in order to preserve the balance between the root system and the existing vegetation.
