We have a lovely Acer, which we inherited when we bought our house 6 months ago. It is in a pot. I have no idea when it was last repotted (I suspect never). It is quite tall, so it is probably a few years old.
There are two problems:
1. The root(s) have grown through the pot into the soil beneath.
2. The soil is waterlogged.
However, despite this the acer is going quite well.
Clearly it needs to be repotted. Can I do this now - in November?
I'm concerned the water will freeze and damage the plant if I just leave it.
Should I pull the root out of the ground or cut it?
