Why would I re-pot these miniature trees again so soon? Well, I moved them and the sweet William planters back home from my office this afternoon, and when I turned my back on them, the cart they were on rolled off the curb and the terra-cotta pots fell off the cart and were smashed.
The new pots are a little larger than the old ones, but they were the closest fit I could find at the store where I bought soil inoculant. I added extra potting soil to make up the difference when I transferred the trees to their new homes. I re-used the same pieces of landscape fabric to keep soil from running out the drainage hole in the bottom of the pots.
After I watered the trees in their new pots, I put them in a shady place so they can adjust to being outdoors before I put them into full sun. Although both trees grew new leaves and one bloomed, they lost their leaves and apparently went dormant again this spring.
