Root Pruning - not Murder!!!!!!!!!
Cornwall, United Kingdom
Ok, lets start again!!!!!!!
I have had a Schefflera with varigated leaves for the last 20 years. It lives very happily in a large pot in my porch. However of late, some red root trails have started extending from the bottom of the pot. I do not want to repot this plant into a larger container as I would have nowhere to put it, so I was wondering if I could cut these small root ends off, to stop further root growth.
The plant/tree already stands 6ft tall and has 3 large branches.
