I was watching Gardening in Georgia yesterday and Elizabeth Dean (Wilkerson Mill Gardens-not shabby! ) attacked the rootballs of some potbound Magnolias with a 3 pronged weeder. There was nothing left but roots.

BTW, she went on to show how making a clay slurry, and dipping the roots in it, gave them a coating that kept them moist when transplanted. She uses it for all the potbound stuff now, apparently. IIRC, Don Shadow (also not shabby) taught her the technique.

The show's up on the website http://www.gardeningingeorgia.com/ under mudding roots.

I had a new volunteer helping us pot up 2 & 3 in pots to larger sizes. I started him on Ravennna Grass. He said he knew to tease the roots from the rootball. Good. But man, he attacked them with avengence. It seemed he was trying to get all the soil out. You can't kill Ravenna though.
