I'm total novice to this, and I'm new to bonsai in general aswell, but I couldn't let this opportunity go to waste!... A family member is digging out 20 hedge's from the perimeter of her garden, and I want to (if i can) use them for bonsai - even if not successful bonsai, just the process of repotting + styling + pruning etc... I'm not sure what type of hedge it is, I think it's privet, but i'll get some photo's. My question is: Whats the best way to go about digging them up? I have alot of spare time so I plan on doing it myself, but I dont know if it's just a case of digging a circle (which is a relevant size to the diameter of the trunk) and the same for depth, then transferring into a suitable container? I think the family member wants rid of them asap, so I want to crack on! any help/advice would be appreciated! Thanks, Owen.
