I have a Cotoneaster horizontalis growing out from my hedge into a border. Can I train it into the border or should it be left to come out naturally?



Hi Mrsg and welcome to GoY. So far as I am aware you can't 'train' a cotoneaster horizontalis. You can, of course, prune it.

Thanks for responding. Maybe encourage would have been a better choice of words?

Still don't think you can beyond pruning - which we have to do...

How do I say thanks?
