Hi Gedam,i cant comment on the root that's been cut off but , if i repot a fair sized tree and at the moment im doing figs,the experts say if you cant go into a bigger pot or into open soil then remove 20% of the old rootball with a sharp knife repot 1 to 2 inches deeper than before adding new compost and tamp down well,this is usually done every 2 years god luck

we used to have a few ,silver and coppery  coloured ones in Wales, just superb creatures, if your lucky and there's more DONT  move them,they wake up about now and start mating ,hopefuly 7 to 9 live young in Aug to Sept, they eat slow moving small stuff including snails and slugs,your lucky.
