Here is my deshojo Maple which was grafted on a Yamamomiji trunk base.
As you see this inverse taper and nebari are not very nice.
I would like to get rid off this grafted base so first is it a good idea and what would mlbe the best/easy/successful way to do I?
I was thinking of airlayering just above the graft or maybe “ground” layer it, I don’t know if it is the right term.
Maybe I miss other options ?
There’s plenty of videos to show how to air layer a tree but about ground layer should I just repot and put soil until the desired level ? Should I still put sphagnum moss around the trunk and then apply all the soil around and over the moss ?
Edit: also when would be the best time for each methods?
I’ll take any advice
