Many beginners trees can also be found to be planted in very poor soils; they will need repotting into better quality soil. Crataegus monogyna/Common Hawthorn bonsai, collected and developed since 2004 by Harry Harrington. Height 28"/70cm Age How old is my tree? The ONLY way of accurately ageing a tree is by counting the tree-rings at the base of the trunk, obviously this is not possible! Normally the age of a tree can be reasonably estimated when a tree has been owned by the same person who propagated it from seed or a cutting; nursery stock can often be estimated reliably at being 2 or 3 years old when bought from a garden centre.

Root pruning produces a small densely packed rootball that enables the plant to be planted in a suitably scaled container. Without root pruning the plant becomes pot-bound and loses its health and vigour. By the process of removing around 1/3 of the roots each year new soil can be introduced to the pot and room is given to allow new roots to grow. Bonsai can vary in height from a few centimetres to a metre. There is no strict height limit. It is simply that the tree is cultivated in a pot and creates an image of an ancient tree in nature.

Gradually the live portion of the root system becomes smaller and as it does it is able to support less of the visible top growth of the tree. Foliage on the tree will start to yellow and drop; smaller branches will shrivel and die back. As the live portion of the root-ball becomes even smaller, it is eventually unable to support the primary branches and the trunk, causing the tree to die. Root-rot is often only detected at repotting time in Spring. Rotted roots will be found to be black and will disintegrate when touched.
