When to re pot a Verbernum

I've moved to a property that has left plants in pots, thankfully this tree had the label so I know it's a Verbernum, but do I need to re pot it & if yes when is the best time. The surface was covered in moss & weeds which I've cleared away. Any help please. Thanks

    We need a picture of the whole plant, so we can se it’s size compared to the pot.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    What a bonus! It's a beautiful tree or crocus sells it as a shrub 
    If youare going to replant into the garden in the future I wouldnt worry about repotting at the moment but remove a couple of inches of soil and replace with fresh, John Innes no 3 preferably. Keep well watered.
  • It's in a 15 inch pot & the tallest branch from the top of the pot is 43 inches. Thanks

    The label says it grows to 10ft which I don't really want, so could the height & width be contained if its re-potted into a bigger pot or will it need to go in the ground?

    It will be happier in the ground but you can prune to contain the size  to some extent.
