Hello all. I have a friend that said i could have her barberry shrubs in her front yard. There are 4 that are between 6" & 7" wide, and only 18" tall or so. The trunks are just awesome, and very compact branches where she pruned back every year with cutters, no electric trimmers. She doesnt do bonsai, but looks like they were trained that way. They are growing in the ground, and i am planning on digging this week. . Are there any pointers anyone could give me, or has anyone had any luck with these? They are around 15 years old. berberis thunbergiana species. THanks in advance.
