When you have potted plants you inevitably have pot bound plants. This tool, used in Bonsai, is for prying and teasing loose pot bound roots. Rather than slicing them with a knife, further traumatizing an already stressed plant, gently pull the roots apart with the root hook. Your plant will recover much faster from this type of handling. If you have more than a few plants in pots, this is an essential tool.

About the maker : Hand forged in the Pacific Northwest in small batches by one of few remaining blacksmiths making these types of tools in the US, Red Pig Garden Tools. With a specialty in historical, often one-of-a-kind, tools that you will not find in other garden tool offerings, this collection is built to last.
