Hi, i bought this Prunus last Fall in the nursery. Now i’m trying to find out whats the best way to turn the trunk into a bonsai. If possible i would like to keep the top part alive as well.
My first idea was just to make an air layer, but after watching some videos about it here, i noticed that might be the best way to kill the trunk.
So do i have to cut the tree at a very low point, even though there are no branches yet. If yes, when is the best time for this?
I read, the best time for pruning an ornamental cherry is after the blossom.
I would be very grateful for tips.
