Privet Multi Trunk Bonsai

February 2012 continued: After cleaning the surface of the rootball, it was possible to see where the various trunks met at the trunkbase. However, to reveal the trunkbase fully would firstly require careful removal of all the fine roots that emerged from it.

After removal of some fine roots and cleaning away of more of the peat-based soil, as well as ground-soil from when the tree grew as a hedge, the powerful trunkbase was fully revealed.

With such a large volume of fine-roots still remaining after bare-rooting, I decided that the tree could be planted straight into a large bonsai training pot. To ensure that the Privet could fit into a shallow pot, I had to remove a number of thick (5-10cm) stumps from underneath the trunkbase.
