So I've just bought a nice 1.5m English Oak from a diy/garden centre for Ã‚Â£9.99 (they couldn't find a price so they made a guess!) It has some fantastic taper going on with lovely nebari already. Just need to trunk chop it in order to start bonsai-ing it!
Thing is, I've read contrasting views on when to do this and how to go about it. Any advice? It does have 2 branches low enough to become new leaders. And I would post a photo but our internet is down at present (using my mobile to access this now but won't let me upload photos!) Your suggestions would be much appreciated!
