|Two Brugs waiting to be repotted|
|I enlisted Nigel's help with tipping the pot onto its side|
|A few good hard tugs on the central leader, and the plant slid right out. You can see how root-bound it has gotten.|
|I used a little hand fork to scrape soil away and rough up the roots|
|In a five-gallon bucket I mixed Dr. Earth fertilizer and potting soil|
|I put a layer of new soil on the bottom of the pot, then lifted the plant back into the pot and filled all around the edges with new soil, making sure to push and pack the soil all around the newly pruned root ball.|
|Two repotted Brugmansias|
I read about this process on the Internet, after Googling "repotting Brugmansias." Do you grow them? Have you ever done anything like this?
