Cascade Quercus robur

So I thought I put this up. This is a little yamadori English (European) Oak. I collected this in December 2021. Since then the oak has recovered in an air pot with a mix of molar clay, perlite and composted pine bark. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture from then.

So the repot went well. There was a good amount of roots. All in all I am quite happy with the initial part. I’ve removed some dead sections and areas that do not add anything to the design.

And I possibly shouldn’t have but I got bored and put on a little wire.

Personally I prefer the other side as a potential front . Might be as well easier to hide the cut (?)


You are right. It’s not too bad!

The cut will be worked away in time. Worst case may try to make it look like a hollow.


I’m glad you like it :slight_smile:
If you keep the angle of the original picture (and my not so pro mock up :wink:) it gives the trunk nicer movement - growing to the left and then bending down and slightly up to the right. Here I would suggest to remove the top of two roots growing from the trunk on the right.
This is my vision but hope it will give you an idea :slight_smile:

Yes! This is awesome for a cascading oak!!
