I just wanted to add some more information other readers may find usefull. Pyracantha can be effected by Fireblight and Pyrcantha scab, there are varieties though that are resistant. Also most people assume the berries are poisonous but infact there are not and can be eaten, its used to make Pyracantha jelly. this this website might be usefull to other readers as it is all about Pyracantha and offer alot of good information www.pyracantha.co.uk

When should I prune my pyracantha? Summer, winter? After flowers or berries?
