Silver Birch repotted

Betula pendula, or perhaps a natural hybrid between B.pendula and B.pubescens.

Harvested in 2012 from a building plot nearby. Suffered poor regrow the first 2 yrs in the ground in my garden, I don't have a clue as to why. It should have progressed more by now, but hey not all goes as planned. Anyway since more than 2 yrs it regained vigour.
Still a good few years of building up ahead.

Repotted a few days ago, into a smaller (but still quite big and quite heavy) container, for the next 2 to 3 yrs. It can handle a repotting this early in winter, I am not worried. Only with heavy frost I will consider some shelter.
