Berberis thunbergii

This tree is new to my collections. I have collected it last Friday , and I love it as it is.

as it become to my garden. it looks like the tree has been freshly potted.So I decided to take it out of the pot and transfer to something shallow wit free drainage mix.

out of the pot and fresh compost soil. As you can see there is some other soil around rots stock, and lots of fresh green rots. I have cleaned of all that soil, and removed some heavy rots too.

this is my tree in new home. I love the natural image. Now it recover, and I have a time to find some lovely proper pot for it. Any comments, tips, advice very welcome.
