I bought a small firethorn from B&Q today, and was just wondering about care instructions, especially when and how to prune.
Also, when pruning would spur pruning work by making it bushier like climbing roses?
Would any uneaten or wrinkly berries need removing, to allow new growth, and would the old stalks with the berries on need removing with them?
Will it also eventually need training on to a larger trellis?
I know I asked a lot (sorry), but it is just that I like this shrub / bush or whatever it is, and would like to care for it properly. (What category does this come under?)
Any advice greatly recieved
Thanks in advance.
