I am starting my first cascade design and feel a little out of my element. It is nursery stock and I don’t believe it is grafted but I could be wrong. The trunk was chopped before I bought it. And it was initially wired last year. I just rewired it and did some basic styling this week. July ‘20.
One thing in particular I am looking for is what to do with the trunk above the top branch. Create some shari or a more flush cut?
I welcome any critical feedback as I am a little out of my element.
