My ceramic container is only 14 ins x 14 ins. Dose it need a bigger container. I would have to smash the container now to remove it so has not to disturb the root ball. Can that be done now and what size container and compost would you recommend? Many thanks Liam Bond

I do think that the container is just a bit small. You want to get as close to between 10 to 20 gallons as possible for the rootball to be happy. It will be ok to disturb the rootball. I wouldn't worry too much about that. Adding compost will be fine at potting up, and every 6 months to a year.
