    When to repot in Southern Washington/Northern Oregon?

    I am a recent transplant to the Portland area, and this being my first "real" winter since starting bonsai 20-something years ago. I had lived in San Francisco (where winter often came in July and August) and San Diego (where we never had winter at all), so repotting season started in late Jan...
