Hello Friends,

This year in June, I had air-layered a branch of Pyracantha in my garden. It has been successful with lots of roots. So far so good.

However I had a change of mind and now I want to give the whole bush a tree shape. The branch that I air-layered is quite central to the shape I am contemplating and so I now need to retain that branch.

So my question is: Will there be any problem if I were to just cut-off the new roots and leave the original branch as it was. Will that kill the branch?

Thanks.

No, Just trim the root balls off and see if you can sell those your have airlayered. Very good as a barrier fence to burglars and trespassers! Wish I live near you. I paid £5 for a tiny one!
