training pyracantha

United Kingdom Gb

I have recently planted several pyracantha along my fence and I wondered what would be the best way to "train" it to the fence. I mean is it best to have a wooden structure of it to grow on, or wire, or string? Any and all ideas welcome.



Wires and ties is the best method to train them on, and will last longer than wood.

Pyracantha is a pretty strong plant and would probably be ok on its own, but as Doctorbob says, wires and ties will be fine.

thanks, do you tie the wire onto the actual plant or near it? And what kind of wire/ties? thankyou

We have wires stretched along a wall, then the Pyracantha is tied on to the wires at intervals - we use those electric cable ties! They last, which string doesn't...
