After looking for over a year i have found some bonsai material. It is an evergreen azalea that is anything over 15 years old, and is growing in a garden that has poor sandy soil. The plant is in poor health. But has a large trunk.
I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice for removing the plant from the ground, i have read differing advice on the internet, so would be great to hear form someone on here. Some advise stated to remove over a couple of years. Other advise states just to remove the plant and put into a pot. I have bought a couple of books as well but they don't contain much info on this process.
I really don't want to mess this up! So not sure how to go about it.
Has anyone had any experience with this process, and creating a bonsai?
