If you prune them now and don't put them in the ground til next summer, they won't root
I wouldn't guarantee that Nut. Probably not in your dry soil, but I've known old willow sticks root in boggy Mid Suffolk clay
But James, if you use them as pea sticks and they root, they won't grow so big that you can't pull them out when the sweet peas go over.
