    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 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?
