Snip off the ends of any roots that are broken, but if the root structure is fibrous do not otherwise reduce it. If the fibres have to be coiled a little in the pot it will not matter. If the root area is confined to two or three strong fangs, it will be necessary to shorten them. In potting, it is advisable to make the soil very firm. Note the point where the plants have been worked on to the stock, and so arrange matters that it is just below the surface of the soil when the potting is finished. Keep the plants in a shady place for a few days, and maintain the soil just moist, but not sodden: root action will then quickly commence. Should the weather be hot, light syringings will be beneficial. The plants may be placed in their winter quarters directly potting is complete.
