Can anyone advise me on moving my Katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum Japonicum) I've had it in a fairly small decorative glazed pot for six or seven years and in that time it's grown to about nine feet tall.It's been fine where it was but now i need to move it and of course the roots have grown out of the pot and anchored it into the soil around.
I obviuosly can't get it out of the pot so i'm wondering,if i cut the root and just move it is it likely to die or the alternative is to uproot the whole thing and replant it pot and all.
I've read that they grow up to 40 feet in America and 100 feet in their native Japan.Anyone have one here in the UK and can tell me their expected height?I've only a smallish garden.
I've posted this again as i'm not sure i put it in the right place first time.Sorry
